Presented as part of our regular Studio Session program, during National Science week we welcome special guest artist, Kurt Ploenges (aka Tater Beard) who will show you how to create 3D models using the free software ‘Blender’. Create characters for video gaming, 3D printing, or just render them as images because they look so cool. Learn the basics and then come along for our more advanced workshop later in the year.

Please have Blender downloaded prior to the session, and bring your own laptop along to learn.

Free event. Drop-in session, no bookings required.

Recommended for ages 12+ with computer skills.
