Friday, July 13, 2012 at 10:00 AM - Saturday, July 14, 2012 at 6:00 PM (CEST)
Your Design - Your Way, a design master workshop by Ronen Kadushin
Using CNC tools and 3D printing welcomes everyone’s will and way of expression. Free from traditional product design disciplines, a unique design approach is emerging- Yours. If you enjoy being in FabLabs or maker spaces, and you are into digital fabrication or just making stuff, then this 2 day workshop might interest you.
As a group or individual, the 2-day workshop aims to guide authentic expression with a design process. It sets a creative environment for generating ideas and concepts, understanding their potential, and developing them into objects that reflect your character and way of expression. The workshop is not about the technical or production aspects of fabrication, it is a learning experience where you, your qualities, skills, creativity and energy are the focus. Nevertheless, it is a hands on intensive workshop with the goal of producing objects.
In the workshop you will learn:
• Find design ideas and concepts.
• Explore the potential and qualities of a design.
• Make a design meaningful to you.
• Understand the themes of your design.
• Communicate ideas and opinions through objects.
• Integrate elements into an aesthetic design.
• Document your design process.
• Reflect upon and evaluate your work.
The workshop is intended for 12-16 people with some experience in 3D modeling and digital production. You certainly don’t have to be an expert. In case you are, you will also contribute your skills to help other participants.
You are required to bring a laptop computer with a 2D or 3D software you are comfortable with, a computer mouse, and writing and sketching materials.
The cost for the 2-day workshop is 200 € (not including materials and production costs)
The workshop is held in English.
