Thank you UNC Asheville Alumni Association for sharing the news article in the Citizen-Times about the LSTA grant and our upcoming opening in D. Hiden Ramsey Library at UNC Asheville!

The grant awarded to Ramsey Library will fund the purchase of 3D printers, large format printers and tablets for instruction and visualization.

The answer?

We received the Form 2, our stereolaminate (SLA) printer today! Instead of using a filament reel to print items, the Form 2 uses resin and prints its items upside down, which can allow for greater detail in the work. #librariesofinstagram #craftstudiounca #makerspace

Ever wonder what 3D printing looks like in time lapse?

The answer? The first of our new 3D printers arrived today! The PrintrBot Simple is our portable machine and is incredibly easy to use. Here it is in action! #librariesofinstagram #makerspace #craftstudiounca

The news is now official; welcome the CrAFT Studio to Ramsey Library, coming this fall!

Ramsey Library is proud to announce the forthcoming CrAFT (Creativity, Art, Fabrication, and Technology) Studio, slated for a Fall 2016 opening.

D. Hiden Ramsey Library, located at the heart of UNC Asheville’s campus, is the vital center of the pursuit of knowledge at UNC Asheville - inspiring intellectual curiosity, partnering in scholarly endeavors, anticipating information and service needs, exceeding expectations and embodying the university's highest aims. The forthcoming CrAFT (Creativity, Art, Fabrication, and Technology) Studio, funded in part by a LSTA EZ Literacy & Lifelong Learning Grant, is intended as a student-driven space adjacent to the Media Design Lab where all UNC Asheville students, faculty, and staff can utilize a myriad of tools to be creative at the intersection of technology, creativity, and scholarship. Rather than just calling our studio a “makerspace”, we see the CrAFT Studio as a multi-use space meshing elements of a multitude of creative spaces, be they drafting studios, machine shops, or the quintessential artist studio. We will be bringing in 3D printers, large-form printers, state-of-the-art tablets, convertible furniture, and much more to create a dynamic studio environment where creativity, scholarship, critical thinking, and inquiry work in concert with one another. The CrAFT Studio will become a hub for creativity and collaboration for all majors on our campus!
