Workshop Instructor

The Participants will be given optional (but highly recommended) weekly assignments to practice their skills.

The Digital Fabrication Project will be a “Parametric Vase” that the participants will design and fabricate.
Participants will choose 1 out of 5 types of parametric families (1- Wavy, 2- Twist, 3- Cellular, 4- Flat, 5- Organic), then they will develop their design into a complete Grasshopper Definition and fabricate it using FabLab’s facilities (3D Printing, Laser Cutting or CNC Milling).

The instructor will support the participants to make sure their projects will be realized on time.
