Digital generation of patterns for textile prints in laser cutting

Until 17 February 2021

In the first part of the workshop, programming notions will be taught using the free code tool Processing: it will be explained how to develop an application that allows a vector motif to be randomly distributed on a flat surface.

During the second part, we will teach how to prepare the designs generated with the application to send them to the laser cutting machine and give an original finish to our leather pieces.
