Sustainable Design

Reduce.  Reuse.  Recycle.  At Langara, it's more than a catchphrase:  it's a way of life.

In these courses, you'll use Langara's state-of-the-art Makerspace facilities to create something useful and beautiful from materials that would otherwise be thrown out.  Materials like vinyl advertising banners, fabric samples, even tyre rubber and scrap metal can all find new life with just a little sweat equity and a little lateral thinking. These durable materials were built to last forever -- in the Makerspace, we're committed to making "forever" last a little longer.

You'll learn to use the Makerspace equipment to create items to take home.  More than that:  you'll learn the skills to make the new, the useful, and even the giftable and saleable out of upcycled materials.  By the end of each course, you'll be proficient on the machines you learn, you'll have learned the skills of desiging from idea to prototype to finished product, and you'll be ready to take on projects of your own.

Join Langara's Makerspace.  Make things better.
