David Colbert

I am a sculptor who uses SolidWorks engineering software to help design and fabricate much of my work. I will demonstrate the use of this software and display some resulting 3-D printed artwork.

We’ll demonstrate ways to use 3D Printing to create molds for forming rapid set bio-concrete made from cornstarch, sand, water and a microwave oven. This technology could one day be used to create housing where traditional concrete ingredients are lacking, such as Mars. We’ll also display DIY technologies for casting metals using 3d printed forms and shapes, and display a wide array of products and prototypes we’ve created over the years.

Mobile Making with Karen Rossi

Paper shapes, beads and charms will be made available for people to create mobiles with. Mobiles are built from the bottom up. Shapes are attached to arches and the balance point needs to be found and punched. Sections are built, connected, and again, the balance point will need to be found and punched.

Under Mountain Weavers

We are second generation hand weavers, working on 4 harness looms creating cotton towels & napkins; wool blankets & chenille scarves. Our largest fly shuttle loom (72″, which we are unable to bring, though we welcome studio visits) lead to the beginning of the industrial revolution over 250 years ago. Our photos show the “sheep to shawl” creation of our woven goods.
