Artist Development Workshop - Blender

Saturday 7 December 2019


This event is cancelled.

7th December, 1-4pm, at Phoenix.

Blender is a free, open source 3D creation suite. This workshop, hosted by Phoenix’s FTP artist meet-up , is aimed at complete beginners and will cover the basics of the software and how it can be used in a creative practice. We’ll be looking at modelling, sculpting and texturing, and how these can be used to make images and animations.

We have 8 tickets available for using PC’s at Phoenix, and 7 available for attendees who are able to bring their own laptop. Blender is cross-platform and runs on Linux, Windows, and Macintosh computers. Please check you are able to run Blender on your laptop before booking a laptop ticket and attending the event – further information can be found here: Please also bring with you a three button mouse (PC mouse with scroll button is fine) as this will make the session easier. If you are unable to bring a mouse with you please email and we will arrange to provide one for you.

Places for the talk are free but booking is essential. Pre-book via eventbrite here:

Tickets are limited to one per booking. This event is part of a programme of learning and artist development activity at Two Queens taking place between 2018-2019, made possible with funding from Arts Council England and Leicester City Council.

Les Hayden has taught 3D modelling and digital arts courses at Phoenix Square, and had work made using Blender used in films shown in the Short Cinema and DocFilm festivals.
