This workshop provides all you need to know to get the most out of the vinyl cutting plotter and the hot press at the textile workstation in the laboratory. Both of these tools are used frequently in Hirikilabs.
During the session we will learn how to make our own designs using Inkscape and Gimp. The programme will be as follows:
- Difference between bitmap graphics and vector graphics
- Introduction to the tools
- Converting images into vector graphics
- Editing nodes in vector graphics
- How to make and press
- Project-based practice
