Guest Lecture: Gary Rogowski


Strategy for Design

Design has a vocabulary like any language. It rests on an understanding of purpose, engineering, and beauty. This lecture will give you an outline for considering new designs and how to critique old ones. Learn how to generate ideas, build on sketches, transform your scribbles into models and scale drawings and finally how to generate your cut list so you can get building.

So much of furniture making is left brained and logical, but design is a right brain activity that is  involved with non-linear and synthetic thought. How do you meld the two to create beautiful, sturdy and functional work? Learn an approach for designing work that is based on following simple principles and answering basic questions. It’s rewarding to design and build your own work. Come learn some techniques for succeeding at design.
