You will leave this single session workshop with a finished frame and basic woodworking skills. We will cover how to make deep and flat frames using V-nails, turn buttons and various woodshop tools. This will include cutting, finishing, and hardware, but will not be covering matting. You'll be able to customize your frame size with the options of a small frame (9x12in) or large frame (18x24in). Please select your flame size using the drop-down options above, as your frame size will affect the materials cost.
-Frame hardware: v-nails, turn buttons and screws
MATERIALS TO BRING:
-We will be providing poplar for this workshop. However, if you would like to use a different type of wood, feel free to bring your own!
My name is Jeffrey Yoo Warren, and I am an artist, community scientist, illustrator, and researcher in Providence, Rhode Island.
I collaboratively create community science projects which decenter dominant culture in environmental knowledge production. I host participatory projects, run workshops and give talks on cultural making, collaborative practice, community science, and open hardware. I am also a contributor to over 150 open source code projects, many of which I started and several of whose communities I lead. I’m an illustrator as well as a mentor of programs that support diversity, equity, and inclusion in software engineering, and am Lead Code Community Coordinator at Public Lab as part of this work. (more on this coming soon)
I am a member of AS220 Industries and served three terms on the Open Source Hardware Association board since 2014. I have an MS from MIT and a BA in Architecture from Yale University, and spent much of that time working with artist/technologist Natalie Jeremijenko, building robotic dogs.
