Common Goods is an annual pop-up store featuring laser-cut paper packages of items we need but cannot buy, like empathy, rest and rainbows. The packages were designed by students in Sharon Massey and Sean Derry’s 3D Design and Digital Fabrication classes, first as hand cut paper prototypes which were then translated into digital files for reproduction. Students used a laser cutter in STEAMSHOP, IUP’s interdisciplinary makerspace, to create precision cut multiples of their designs. Each package is for sale, and all proceeds benefit the Future Makers Fund, a catalytic funding stream for emerging makers.
This year, Common Goods will be located in the ticket booth of the Indiana Theater (637 Philadelphia St). The store’s Grand Opening Celebration is Wednesday, November 8th from 6:00-9:00 PM. Additional store hours as follows:
Thursday, November 9, 11:00 AM – 2:00 PM and 6:00 – 10:00 PM
