« Part 45: Graham Blackburn Lecture Part 46 of The Craftsman's Path series Part 47: THree Pillars of Design - Part 2 Construction »

Building on the information that I gleaned from the Graham Blackburn workshop that I attended, I wanted to go into a little more depth on the topics of design that were discussed.

According to Blackburn, there are three pillars of design: Function, Construction, and Proportion. I explore how the function of a piece relates to its design in the latest post on my blog. Thanks for reading!

Keep an eye out for some future posts on the other “Pillars”. It was an interesting workshop.
