TACT | Teen Apprentice in Craft and Technology
The TACT program will launch in January 2022 with a pilot cohort of 10 teens from the Pittsburgh region. They will explore the intersection of Craft and Technology while working in Contemporary Craft’s three Studios. By the end of the program all participants will be certified to use the Rabbit Laser Cutter and will have completed a capstone project of their own design.
Participants will meet at Contemporary Craft once a month during after school hours for a 3-hour workshop in one of Contemporary Craft’s three Studios. They will learn how to design digital files to run the Rabbit Laser, and work with metal, fibers, and wood.
