What we’ll do

A unique and fun experience where you’ll learn everything you need to know about 3D Pens for any one aged 6 and up. Perfect for the whole family and a great way to spend time together. Don’t worry if you haven't tried anything like this before. It may look complicated but in this beginners’ workshop you’ll be shown all of the best tips you need to get started and by the end of the class you’ll be a 3D Pen Pro! Why is this an 'eco friendly' workshop? We'll be using a specially developed eco plastic that's totally biodegradable. It's not hot so you can even draw onto your skin! Grace will tell you all about what a 3D Pen is and how it works. She can show you lots of examples of her work and tell you about the different ways you can create any object. After this you’ll be given a demonstration of some different techniques such as: drawing in the air, constructing 3D shapes from templates, and building up objects with layers. You can have a practice and then work on your own bespoke project to create something special to take home with you. Make anything you like from a custom piece of jewellery to a model avocado!

 

 Everything is included, so you just need to bring yourself. For every ticket, you will be provided with a 3D-printing pen to use, all materials and a free tote bag to take your creations safely home.

Where we’ll be

The class will be held in my studio, which is part of a quirky shipping container building at Trinity Buoy Wharf Situated overlooking the historic docklands with incredible views of The Millennium Dome. You can also see London’s only lighthouse, London's smallest museum and some amazing sculptures. As well as a lovely café, an American style diner and much more! I’d be happy to give you a quick tour of the sights before the workshops starts.
