Summer at Woodstock – Design Thinking

Learn 3D Printing and Making

Crafting is learning by making. The word Craft is often limited to hand crafting. However, Crafting can be extremely precise and much faster through machines. In the era of Digital revolution, design thinking and making is a seamless process driven by computer numeric control (CNC) machines. 3D printing is one such method which help us make desired objects by adding material precisely where it needs hence minimise wastage unlike traditional sculpting methods where a large stock of material is removed to get desired object.

 

The workshop will teach participants designing and making by 3D printing. Students will learn software to design/model in 3D and print using a 3D printer in plastic. They will be guided to think about making larger whole by connecting smaller objects (components/units/parts) using these methods. In the end they will assemble an art installation by connecting the 3D printed objects (components).

 

Who should take this course?

It’s hands on experience, so those who are enthusiastic about designing and making.

 

How will participants be different when they’ve completed this course? What skills or knowledge will they have gained?

The participants learn to externalise ideas in physical world. One, They would have acquired knowledge of software and skills required to think different from traditional sculpting methods. Second, they would have gained hands on experience of making their ideas.

 

Why is your experience so relevant for this course?

I am conducting Digital Crafts workshop since 2013 and have expertise in Computational Design and Digital Fabrication for 10 years.

Age Range: 14-18

Course Timings: 50 hours of instruction
