Course Description

One of the greatest ways to learn stereotomy is by practicing net models. The net of an object is the flattened out surface that can be folded back into its 3D shape.

Our students learn the basics of stereotomy by creating the net of a cube, pyramid, irregular pyramid, single and double curved surfaces, and then onto roof designs. A lot of the net projects include irregular pitched roofs with hips and valleys, and other's include curved surfaces.

The advantage of practicing this technique enables the brain to better visualize the overall size and shape of a design very clearly in the mind first. They are exercises for the mind. An idea is first seen in the mind's eye....

During the course students will use paper as a medium for creating the net surfaces. These courses are great for architects, designers, carpenters, general contractors, and those interested in creating and designing structures.

 

These progressive courses are an introduction to Stereotomy where participants will

  • learn proper drafting techniques
  • learn drafting tool usage
  • be creating net surfaces of folded out 3D shapes based on given dimensions and restrictions
  • be creating and designing structures both simple and complex

 
Spots are limited and is treated on a first come first serve basis. However, priority is given to past students who are working towards their certifications.

 

Class starts at 8am and finishes at 4pm (plan on arriving at 7:45am). There will be a coffee break in the morning (coffee and snacks are provided) and a 45 minute lunch.
