How to create objects through 3D printing will be the focus of a free family art/technology workshop at Cascadia Art Museum on Saturday, Sept. 7.
The workshop will run from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. and is recommended for children, parents, grandparents and friends. Cascadia Art Museum is located at 190 Sunset Ave., Edmonds.
The Sept. 7 event is led by David Voetmann, an industrial designer, teacher and manager of the Maker Space Lab at Edmonds Community. Voetmann and assistant teacher Chuck Loomis will discuss the simple computer basics of 3D.
“The future is already here,” Voetmann said, “and, for me, it is always magical to scan an object into a computer and then replicate it, bring it into this world, using the 3D printer.”
Participants are invited to bring an object no bigger than a grapefruit for scanning. “We’ll discuss how to scan it and, if possible, pull it into the computer on the spot,” he said.
The first 20 participants will get a swag made at the Maker Space at Edmonds Community College.
While at Cascadia Art Museum, you can visit the current exhibits, “Paintings from the Palouse: The Art of Andrew L. Hoffmeister” and “Quiet Hour: The Photography of Yukio Morinaga.” There is also a museum gift and book shop filled with art, jewelry, cards, toys, books and exhibit prints.
The museum will offer two more Saturday events in its 2019 Family Workshops series:
– Saturday Oct. 12, 11 a.m.-1 p.m., Shadow Puppets for Halloween with Mike O’Day
– Saturday Dec. 7 at 11-1, Christmas Cards with Mona Fairbanks
