Have you ever wanted to work with technology but didn’t know where to start? Site’s series of New Tricks workshops aims to demystify the technology employed by artists and give participants the skills they need to set them on a path of creative exploration.

In this session participants will learn the basics of Blender and how to import 3D scans. We will also explore how Blender can be used as a tool for world building by creating AR projections from our creations. 

Suitable for beginners aged 14+


This event will take place on the second floor of our building and is wheelchair accessible via a lift. There are accessible toilets on the same floor. If you have any questions or if there is anything we can do to improve your visit please email
