Workshop Options:

STRATA: A Workshop in Layers

A fun and informative workshop that explored how materials can be layered to create dynamic sculptural
forms that reflect the ‘layer by layer’ nature of 3D printing. Pupils created a multi-layered cut out relief
drawings. Fabricated sculptures were then built up from concentric shapes of sheet foam in alternating
colours. Modelling follows through the lamination and manipulation of two colours of air drying clay. The
workshop concluded with an opportunity to touch and hold some of Michael Shaw’s 3D printed sculptures
and a slide lecture exploring several fantastic layered objects from Architecture, Art and Design.

3Doodling with Grace Du Prez

Grace Du Prez, designer-maker and Mixed Media Textiles graduate from The Royal College of Art (2010)
has used a 3Doodler for over 3 years to produce unique and innovative objects, jewellery and millinery. In
this workshop students learnt all about creating designs using the 3D printing pens.
