3D Pen Workshop #2

SOLD OUT | Katya Venter
3D Pen Workshop #2

Image: Katya Venter with 3D works from her exhibition, How to be a Good Doll.

Join Umbrella and exhibiting artist Katya Venter to develop unique artworks with a 3D pen. This approach enables a shift away from a flat surface to designing and drawing three-dimensional forms. The artist will lead participants through the 3D-printed techniques and processes used to create the sculptures presented in her exhibition How to be a Good Doll, whose abstract forms inspire curiosity and reflection.

The workshop will be suitable for beginners and artists alike. The fee covers all materials needed for the workshop: a 3D pen, PLA filament and a variety of objects that can be used as reference or base for the sculptures. The workshop ticket price includes one 3D pen (new, apart from use in the workshop; RRP $79.95) that participants will keep. Attendees should wear closed-in shoes in the studio.

Please note that this workshop has now sold out! You are welcome to contact [email protected] to express your interest and be added to the waiting list.
