Local for Local Workshops at Prince George
Written by cemre
Researcher John Bondoc will be hosting a series of workshops focused on wooden consumer products at Two Rivers Gallery within the framework of Local for Local Footwear Project.
Create your own nametag!
On Tuesday, September 17th
The goal of the workshop is to expose young makers to the idea of using a computer as a creative tool and being able to output designs from the computer to a real-world product, in this case, a nametag via CNC.
Using the Adobe Illustrator software, participants will examine how a product is created, learn to make changes to their designs, learn how to create tool paths. By the end of the workshops, participants will output their designs using a desktop CNC.
The workshop will equip participants with Adobe Illustrator tool skills (scale, fonts, move, file export, create new file), basics of X Y Z coordinates and CNC set up.
Introduction to Desktop CNC for home-based
Wednesday, September 19th
Learn how to create small consumer products using a simple desktop CNC. This workshop is for people who feel comfortable using a computer and have limited or no CNC experience.
In a seminar preceding the workshop, John Bondoc will talk about the Local for Local research project and its practical applications- creating wooden consumer products to support a small, home-based business.
Participants will learn to make carved signs, a growler or bottle holder, roughed-out wooden cutlery and will be exposed to 3D carving, part-flipping, jig design for veneer bending.
