The Enchanted WoodTrurners of Santa Fe NM

2019 April 8 – Design Meeting

Monday- 6PM- April 8, 2019  Enchanted Woodturners Meeting

We will meet at ECO Woodworking Shop, see driving & parking diagram below, and look at the ECO location on Google Satellite to see it better.

SUBJECT:  Fundamentals of Design Presenter:  Charles Harrison

Is good design more than a beautiful S Curve?  Well, Charles will answer that question for you, and he will answer your questions about design too.

Charles’  presentation will examine the scope and fundamentals of design.  The basic ideas will be:  1. beauty, 2. utility, 3. the physical attributes of materials, and 4. the concept that things can be different than they are.  It is the interaction of these four ideas that inform all design, and he will try to relate them to wood specifically, but he has worked much less in wood than in fabric.  He will also talk about an art form which he invented.

For his favorite designers, he will show us photos of clothes by Coco Chanel, Hubert de Givenchy, and Herve Leger, a building by Frank Gehry, and a prosthetic device by Yamanaka Shunji.

Show & Tell” please bring at least one “good” piece to brag about, and one “mistake/bad” piece to explain or ask what went wrong.

We will all have a wonderful time, so don’t be late and come early to visit with friends.

President, TEW
