The Ryerson School of Interior Design Workshop is equipped to support hands-on discovery of three-dimensional design solutions, structural analysis and materials. Knowledgeable staff will help you become familiar with equipment and will support your design explorations as your 3D experiences are a vital part of the school’s educational values.


Our Workshop includes a variety of woodworking machinery available for student use. Students will have direct access to bandsaws, drill presses and stationary sanders, as well as various hand and power tools with assistance and additional training from our technician. The Workshop also features a table saw, panel saw, mitre saw, jointer, planer, lathe, vacuum former, metal band saw and a metal drill press.


The Workshop also has digital fabrication equipment onsite to help realize your projects, advanced models and prototypes. RSID houses the Faculty of Communication and Design's FabLab, which has a variety of equipment such as 3D printers, vinyl cutter, 3D scanners, laser cutters and more. The laser cutters can quickly and accurately cut, etch and raster on a variety of materials including MDF, cardstock and textiles.

We are always looking to add, expand and integrate new technologies into the Workshop.
