Please note: this opportunity has expired!

Two-week work­shop led by Matthew Hebert. In this work­shop we will work between Haystack’s wood studio and Fab Lab, in the process merging tradi­tional processes with cutting edge fabrication techniques.

As most wood­work­ers know, bring­ing organic forms from the real world into your projects can be daunt­ing. However, devel­op­ments in the digital design fields have ushered in a resur­gence of orna­men­ta­tion. In this work­shop we will work between Haystack’s wood studio and Fab Lab, in the process merging tradi­tional processes with cutting edge fabri­ca­tion tech­niques. We will side­step tradi­tional carving processes, instead creat­ing three-dimen­sional forms, through a quick intro­duc­tion to photogram­met­ric scan­ning processes and CNC machin­ing. No prior digital expe­ri­ence required and all levels welcome.

Matthew Hebert has worked under the studio name eleet warez since the mid-1990s. Borrowed from hacker culture, the name suggests his tech­ni­cal sophis­ti­ca­tion, impro­vi­sa­tional spirit, and penchant for free­wheel­ing appro­pri­a­tion. Hebert received a BA in Archi­tec­ture from the Univer­sity of Cali­for­nia, Berke­ley and an MFA from Cali­for­nia College of the Arts. He has taught at the Univer­sity of Wiscon­sin-Madison, Cali­for­nia Insti­tute of the Arts, the School of the Art Insti­tute of Chicago, and is currently an Asso­ciate Profes­sor at San Diego State Univer­sity. eleet​warez​.net @eleetwarez
