    Workshop Series Descriptions

    reACT: Let's Spoon (2/4 9am-6pm) In this session, attendees will be introduced to a concept-to-production workflow and new making tools that lead to the crafting of hand held objects. To kick off the day, each participant will be assigned an ‘attitude’ to translate into a design iteration. Attendees will be given safety training for both digital fabrication and hand-crafting processes as an introduction to the CNC Lab and BAC Shop. We will sketch and iterate designs, translate digitally to a CNC cut file, and then refine the spoons with shop equipment and hand sanding. The goal of this workshop is to make a beautiful object, and arm participants with the knowledge and confidence to continue their careers as makers. reITERATE: Model Mashup (2/11 12-6pm) The BAC AIAS and BAC Makers invites attendees to participate in a half day design charrette. Bring an old studio model from a previous semester and part ways with it. Your old studio model will become the inspiration and platform for others to design and build upon. You will be collaborating with a team - analyzing, evaluating, redefining and executing bold design moves. The charrette will conclude with design presentations and peer critiques. rePRESENT: Collage (2/18 9am-6pm) In this one-day intensive session, attendees will be introduced to the techniques, materials, and mindset of collage. To start off the day, each participant will receive a quick introduction to collage precedents and methods of creating. The workshop will pull together visual material from 16 historical civilizations to create small 9” by 9” capsules of history. The workshop aims to reawaken old ways of creating, with a focus on the analog process. Attendees will learn about themselves and reactivate their relationship between their hands and their mind. reSOLVE: LIT Lamp-making (3/25 9-6pm) In this one-day session, attendees will be introduced concept to production workflow with a laser cutter. With light as our subject, participants will discover the influence it has on small scale objects and spaces. Attendees will choose 3 random verbs to create sketch models focusing on material, light, and space that responds to the prompts. A single iteration will be chosen to resolve. Using digital modeling tools, attendees will create templates and laser cut them for construction. The goals of this workshop are to understand and hone an analog to digital workflow, and to explore material and light while making a beautiful object! reALIZE: Inflatable (4/1 9am-6pm) This workshop teaches participants the process of designing and constructing an inflatable. As a team, will rapidly design and deploy site-specific inflatable installation in the BAC gallery.
