Skill Level(s): II to III i

Instructor(s): Adrien Segal

Tuition: $975
Studio Fee: $125
Registration Fee: $45

Concept:

This workshop bridges the hand-made with the computer-made art form. Participants start with clay, sculpting into a form that is then digitally scanned, modified, perfected and then digitally fabricated via the CNC router, sliced and finally physically assembled into a stack laminated wood sculpture. Students gain experience with design software, digital fabrication tools, lamination assembly, parts registration and simple carving methods, coming away with a unique sculpture.

Media:

Solid wood, plywood, dowels, 3-D scanners, laser cutting, CNC machining, computer-aided modeling

Faculty:
