Graphics Products Studio Example 1
From DT Online
Here students will work in paper, card and a range of light modelling materials, including foam board and plastics, to create graphics products - eg packaging, point of sale displays, architectural models.
This will be the main workspace used for GCSE DT: Graphics Products courses but are also lightly equipped sufficient to be used for general D&T up to KS3 - and beyond for aspects of Product Design courses.
There may be a storeroom adjacent plus doors into the area and sometimes a door to the outside.
Note: The light grey shade areas around each machine tool indicate the safety areas which should be left clear between machines. The orange coloured strips alongside the safety areas indicate permissible overlaps between them.
