The number one priority is getting our residents on the software to get to the machines to get to final project results.
Whether you are interested in the creative application of digital fabrication tools for fibers, textile design, surface design or digital embroidery or our robust 3D program with engineering and modeling workflows for rendering, 3D printing, CNC routing and milling, laser cutting, etc., there is alot to learn here with us. The number one priority is getting our residents on the software to get to the machines to get to final project results. Along the way, we provide each resident with selected temporary software licenses and a limited number of 3D prints, laser cuts, and custom digital embroidery output.
...access to components of each presentation to download and refer to at any time in the future...
The 12 week and 6 week sessions provide invaluable insights into your projects with heavy emphasis on individual project development consultation and group workshops in skill-building technical tutorials on software, resources, processes and even helping artists and designers find their nearest FabLab, TechShop, maker space, or specialized fabricators to help take idea to execution. You will learn about service providers and what to avoid and what works. Residents have access to components of each presentation to download and refer to at any time in the future. Whether you are taking this residency program for professional development or personal curiosity, this residency will put a new spin on the way you think about making.
