Inkscape for Origami Crease Patterns with Benjamin Parker

Partner Hosted

Event recommended by MakeHaven but organized by a partner organization.

Saturday, May 23, 2020 - 10:00am to 12:00pm

In this free online class, learn how to design your own origami forms through the program Inkscape! The first part of the class will be to teach some of the basics of origami corrugations, and then we will use Inkscape to generate our own patterns that can be taken to the laser cutter for easier cutting. Taken to the next level, you can use this technique to work with thicker materials such as wood or cardboard to design more structurally-sound origami pieces.

To participate in this class you will need to install Inkscape on to your desktop computer. Click here to download.

No experience necessary, we recommend having taken the intro to inkscape and/or the intro to corrugations class

Time Requirement: 2 hours
Location: Online (link will be provided to all registrants)

This event is hosted by Makerspace CT and Program support provided by Launc[H]artford.
