Our People

Matt Holmes

Technical Demonstrator, Fab Lab Plymouth

Matt is a multidisciplinary Designer-Practitioner-Researcher, working across many fields such as furniture, lighting, and printmaking. He graduated in 2021 with an MA in Design, with a practice focusing on the intersection of digital technologies and heritage crafts.

Matt enjoys engaging with traditional making processes as well as digital, with an interest in carpentry. In 2018 he was one of eight students selected nationally to attend the Snowdon Summer School, hosted by The Princes Foundation and the Earl of Snowdon, to work alongside three master craftspeople at Dumfries House, Scotland.

Primarily, his current research and work involves applying modern processes within the craft of Letterpress Printmaking. By using digital technologies and folding them back on themselves to apply modern practices to heritage crafts, his work experiments with how this can be used to protect and preserve tacit heritage skills, while also exploring the meaning of how this augmentation of tradition creates its own working practices.

You can also spot Matt on the side of the Ignite Futures citybus travelling around the city!

Matt can be found in Fab Lab Plymouth, supporting students working with digital fabrication, from CAD software support to manufacturing processes such as 3D printing, CNC machining, Laser Cutting, and 3D scanning.
