Vincent Edwards teaches digital fabrication and sculpture at the University of Arkansas where he runs the 3-D Advanced Technologies Lab. He received his MFA from the Herron School of Art and Design in 2012. Vincent’s studio practice focuses on hybrid methodologies, specifically the intersection of traditional furniture craft and digital fabrication.
Vincent'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.
Jun 7 - 11, 2021
Lighting Design with the CNC
In this workshop, students learn to use the CNC (computer numerically controlled) Router and Rhino 3D CAD (computer-aided design) software with the objective of producing a small lighting fixture or stand-alone illuminated object. Participants learn how to design for the CNC Router as well as how to integrate some traditional methods alongside digital fabrication techniques. An emphasis is placed on translating three-dimensional objects into two-dimensional toolpaths.
