The BAC+AIAS Present

'LET’S SPOON' @FORUM

A Section Cut Workshop


THE OVERVIEW

What kind of spoon are you ?

Section Cut invites AIAS Forum workshop attendees to engage in a concept-to-production workflow utilizing both digital and hand making tools. Armed with these skills, we’ll craft novel, functional, and beautiful hand held objects. Each attendee will be assigned a ‘character’ to translate into a design iteration of a spoon.

In the BAC Fab Lab, students will receive safety training for both digital fabrication and hand-crafting processes. Participants will sketch and iterate their designs, translate outputs digitally to a CNC cut file, and refine their creations with shop equipment and hand sanding. This workshop will arm participants with the knowledge and confidence to continue their academic careers as makers.
