New Skins Workshop: 3D Shoe Printing Class in NYC With Francis Bitonti (10 classes)
Monday, July 13, 2015 @ 2:00 pm - 7:00 pm
The New Skins Workshop Series, led by Francis Bitonti, launched Summer 2013 in Brooklyn, New York.
This summer, a 3D shoe printing class called New Skins with Francis will focus on shoe design and production using 3D Printing.
This 10-day workshop under the direction of Francis, will allow students to learn the tools and theory of computational design processes as they relate to shoe design. The 3D shoe printing class called Courses will introduce students to the tools and software needed to design and fabricate complex geometry. In addition to a schedule of courses, students will collaborate with Francis Bitonti Studio on the production of a 3D printed shoes in the form of a working design studio environment.
New Skins Workshop explores new computational design methods and techniques, equipping students with the skills and tools needed to design and fabricate complex geometry in computational fashion design. Students will work closely with Francis Bitonti Studio with the intent to create, develop, and fabricate innovative and iconic forms and shapes.
Francis explains, “The workshop is about finding the new aesthetic formal language of this new manufacturing paradigm. It’s not just about replicating a form from the computer, though that is part of it—it’s about cultivating new material behaviors.”
