Lynne MacLachlan

Lynne MacLachlan takes a creative approach with digital tools and materials, exploring and pushing the capabilities of these, using bespoke software tools and 3D printing to materialise complex forms. Combining these tools with meticulous hand finishing techniques, such as dying, polishing and construction, elevates the pieces to become artful pieces of cutting-edge design that endure.

After a degree in aerospace engineering, Lynne returned to education to study jewellery and metalwork design, with a desire to reconnect with materials and making. Following this Lynne and completed an MA at the prestigious Royal College of Art and completed a PhD with the highly regarded design department of the Open University, researching how designer-makers find creative opportunities through tools and applying these strategies to multi-material 3D printing.
