The 7th Street Studio is a creative workspace open to students, faculty and staff throughout the academic year. It consists of a Studio as well as a MakerSpace annex. Together, these two areas are equipped with a wide range of traditional and modern tools. The Studio area has: 5 pottery wheels, two kilns, 9 sewing machines, a black and white darkroom, and an array of materials. The MakerSpace annex includes high-tech fabrication machines such as 3D printers, a laser cutter, 3D scanners, a vacuum former, a vinyl cutter, a CNC router, and various woodworking tools.
The 7th Street Studio is open approximately 60 hours per week, and is monitored by student assistants and technicians that are trained in the safe and effective use of the equipment. The space empowers users to work on a wide range of projects and facilitates collaboration across disciplines. The MakerSpace is for academic use in furtherance of Bucknell’s mission as a residential-based institution of higher education. Such “academic use” is broadly defined and is not limited to activities that are performed directly in connection with coursework, student research or faculty scholarship. Rather, academic use includes activities that allow faculty to explore concepts they believe might be relevant to future teaching or scholarship at Bucknell, that allow students to engage in activities that support their academic growth, and that allow faculty or staff to work with students in a manner that furthers Bucknell’s residential education model. The MakerSpace should not be used for commercial endeavors or activities that do not have a stated goal in furtherance of Bucknell’s academic mission.
