JUNE CHAPTER MEETING
Exploring the Contemporary Process of Woodcarving
Carveture Shop Tour AND Announcements of Parklet Design Competition finalists!
Wednesday, June 21 - 5:30-7:30 pm
(at the end of N Brooklyn Ave. in Glenwood)
Hosted by Joe and Eric at Carveture, our Chapter Meeting for June takes us inside a working design studio and modern production facility on the Northeast edge of Glenwood. Down a small gravel lane, inside an unassuming red building originally constructed for craftsmen who hand-fabricated pipe organs, Carveture has reclaimed the craft in woodcarving for the 21st century.
Explore and learn how this facility uses the modern machine in place of mallet+chisel for architectural wall panels, doors, and expressive trim decoration. Presentation and tour of this creative space begins at 6:00 with complementary light snacks and drinks available from 5:30.

Learning Objectives: (1 HSW available)
1. Compare the techniques, aesthetics, and possibilities of traditional woodcarving vs. digital/CNC fabrication.
2. Consider the opportunity to repurpose reclaimed/salvaged materials and give them a new and/or unique application through CNC fabrication/alteration.
3. Explore how designers can utilize CNC fabrication techniques to add visual interest to standard building materials that meet fire/life/safety requirements for rated construction types/assemblies.
4. Consider how working with local artisans/fabricators can contribute to sustainability goals for the project and for the community as a whole.
