University to host hands-on two and three-day sessions
London Metropolitan University, home to the Sir John Cass Faculty of Art and Design, is set to launch Digital Works, a series of two and three-day workshops focused on the use of digital design technology and CAD design programs.
The workshops will examine specific methods of digital manufacture including laser and water jet cutting and rapid prototyping, and will be led by specialist technicians from the university.
Attendees of Digital Works will have to chance to see live demos of the machinery, learn about materials and hear talks from inspiring designers and artists who use the machines in their own work. They will also get a chance to use the facilities themselves, taking away valuable hands-on experience rarely offered to the public.
London Metropolitan has highlighted the benefits of digital manufacturing technology, and is running the workshops to allow designers to learn about file preparation, materials and experience with machinery for future application and design process.
The three Digital Works workshops are dated as followed, and can be booked online at www.metropolitanworks.org/EVENTS
