An exhibition of Jewellery made with 3D printing techniques and digital technologies. Wild, wonderful and sometimes vibrant responses to the brief of Tesselations and Repetitive structures. The work shown is by students from London Metropolitan University using rapid prototyping for the first time. All are involved in their own style of creative process and are keen to show off their newest creations.
Questions answered :
How can new technologies be used to craete new jewellery previously impossible to make by hand? How does it answer the context of exhibition and wearability?
We plan to have a range of our equipment for students and teachers to try, allowing them to design in 3D, scan in 3D and print in 3D. If we have the space we will also have some manual and motorised kit tools (lathes, mills, sanders, jigsaws) for the pupils/students to try for themselves. We know from experience that when people have the chance to try our equipment they are enthused and motivated, and the only problem we have is getting them off the equipment so that others can have a go!
