Create a FABulous work of art to wear with digital fabrication. We will explore three-dimensionality through physical and digital tools including 3-D modeling and design software, 3-D printing and laser cutting! With clay, plastic and fabric, watch your creations take shape into objects that you can wear to show your technical prowess and newly-mastered digital sculpting skills. With basic circuitry, add LEDs (lights) to add some eye-catching bling to your new piece. Keep designing and creating in the modeling software, even after the workshop.
