Welcome to Culturally Situated Design Tools! Here you can create your own cornrow hairstyles, graffiti, Native beading, Latinx leatherwork and more. Each tool will teach you:
The local knowledge: how people created their own “algorithms” in weaving, painting, carving, growing and more.
The school connection: how to “translate” between the way traditional artisans think about it, and how those topics are taught today.
The creative process: how to make your own designs by merging cultural traditions with computing, electronics, 3D printing and more..
