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. eleetwarez.net @eleetwarez
