Culture Lab OnSite is hosting a workshop for designers and artists interested in Digital Fabrication and Rapid Protoyping. For one week our project space will be transformed into a workshop equipped with an industry grade laser cutter and a custom built RepRap 3D printer available to all participants to work on their own projects. After an initial introductory lecture (Monday October 17th, 10am), you are invited to work on your own projects for the entire week under assistance by a researcher from Culture Lab.
Limited availability, please register! Send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org stating your name, information about your company and practice, and a brief statement about your interest in rapid protoyping or ideas for a project you would like to work on. Participation fee: £15 to be paid on the first day.
Different material samples will be available in low quantity for all participants to experiment with. For larger projects or very specific interests, participants are required to buy their own materials.
Digital Fabrication and Rapid Prototyping increasingly important method in the a range of design disciplines. It has already become the industry standard in model making among architects and product designers. Companies providing rapid protoyping services are popping up on the market, but for small design studios and artists the costs are often too high for initial experiments and research. Through our workshop we want to provide an opportunity to local design studios and artists to get to know the technology and its possibilities for their individual practice.
Culture Lab OnSite is a project space run by Newcastle University in the city centre of Newcastle. It seeks University engagement with local communities, commercial and industry partners. OnSite wants to enliven the City Centre of Newcastle with interesting culture, arts and technology research and events. We extend community engagement initiatives outside of the University campus and assist in designing and implementing partnership projects between creative industry partners and the University.
