Lari's Upcoming Workshops
Students have experience working with computer-aided design with basic principles of CAM/software.
Students have some formal training in digital fabrication, experience with a variety of materials and fabrication processes, and know how to use CNC, 3-D printers, or laser cutters competently and safely. Students have a portfolio of their work.

Experimental Etching: CNC and Intaglio Printmaking
Broaden your intaglio printmaking skills to include innovative uses of Computer Numerical Control (CNC) routers and other tools in the Ranch Digital Fabrication Lab. This experimental workshop explores use of CNC routers to scribe and engrave plates, expanding the possibilities of a playful approach to making hand-pulled prints. Students move fluidly between digital and analog processes, exploring and learning how each can inform our printmaking process and contribute to a flexible, evolving practice of art making. Participants leave the workshop with prints and ideas of how to integrate technology into existing practices. Low-toxicity printmaking approaches and materials are emphasized.
