More Information on this Workshop
One of the greatest ways to learn stereotomy is by practicing net models. The net of an object is the flattened-out surface that can then be folded back into its 3D shape. Students learn the basics of stereotomy by creating the net of a cube, pyramid, irregular pyramid, single and double curved surfaces, and then onto roof designs. A lot of the net projects include irregular pitched roofs with hips and valleys, and others include curved surfaces. The advantage of practicing this technique enables the brain to better visualize the overall size and shape of a design clearly in the mind first. They are exercises for the mind. An idea is first seen in the mind’s eye.
Students will use paper as a medium for creating the net surfaces. This workshop would be great for architects, designers, carpenters, general contractors, furniture makers and those interested in creating and designing structures.
