The Hybrid Atelier is a creative technology research makerspace, serving as a nexus between the Arts, Engineering, and Sciences. The atelier is a state-of-the-art digital fabrication facility wedded with craft practices in ceramics, textiles, printmaking, and glass-working. It juxtaposes these two making traditions to examine the dielectical relationship between the digital and physical, the material and immaterial, theory and practice, the academic space and the community space, and the professional and the amateur.

The Hybrid Atelier is part of an exciting, emerging ecosystem of makerspaces at the The University of Texas at Arlington and is supported by the Computer Science & Engineering Department in collaboration with Studio CreaTec in the Art + Art History Department.

We welcome students, staff, and faculty across disciplines to become members of the atelier. We support all technical skill levels. Find out in what ways you can participate here.
