In this informational class, you'll be introduced to various styles of seat weaving, with a focus on weaving a basic cane seat. A hands-on weaving practice session on a small frame will take place at the first, live, class. This will be followed by supply information and three 1-hour Zoom classes to assist and answer questions as you weave your seat. Participants are encouraged to bring a chair they want to work on at the first face-to-face informational class to have it evaluated.
Rhino provides all the tools needed to accurately model and document your designs for CAD drawings, renderings, laser cutting, 3D printing, prototyping, CNC milling, and other manufacturing processes. This beginner class will introduce the Rhino interface and how to set-up, navigate, and organize your model; the different types of geometric objects that exist in Rhino and their most common uses; how to create and edit objects; and how to export and import drawing info to other software programs. After this course, you will understand the basics of Rhino, and have the skills to start modeling your first basic project. A basic understanding of x, y, and z coordinates and orthographic projection will be necessary in order to be successful in this class.
