Bamboo offers design students new opportunities to understand form. This interview is with Scott Vandervoort one of our guest facilitators at Bamboo U. Scott has been teaching 3D design at Pratt Institute in New York for over 15 years, and has lectured internationally on form making. He runs training workshops on abstract visualization techniques and in developing hand eye coordination. Scott fell in love with bamboo while living in Bali in 2019. Listen in to learn more about how bamboo can help us expand our creativity and develop beautiful objects out of bamboo.
