Over 2 days this workshop will explore digital and analogue sculptural process combining hand stone carving techniques and the digital processes for 3D modeling
Each day will be split into 2 sessions:
- Mornings – creating a stone relief carving with Claudia
- Afternoons -learning digital and 3D modeling processes including Virtual Reality sculpting, full body motion capture with Sumit
The aim is for each participant to learn or develop their skills by using a combination of practical and digital methods to create work including
- Learning stone relief carving techniques
- Using technology to produce digital sculpture, navigate a 3D space and basic animation processes
Everyone will have a chance to complete a stone carved relief and a digital model of their creations, with a print of their 3D sculpture
All tools and materials are provided but participants will need to bring their own computer/ laptop and mouse.
