The Design Fabrication Zone (DFZ) is part of Toronto Metropolitan University’s Zone Learning ecosystem. We provide members with a home-base to explore their practice along the continuum of fabrication and design from our downtown headquarters at The Creative School’s Innovation Studio. Our facilities connect making-based creatives and entrepreneurs with workshop space, hotdesking, and digital fabrication services.
