I would like to conduct a Blender 3D Workshop at Hackerspace. I want people to get a feel of this awesome (and feature complete) open source project. More importantly I would like to provide leads to many relevant subjects, so that the learning path afterwards can be smoother. For interested parties; there will be a long learning path after the workshop. No one can teach 3D Animation in a couple of hours, typically professionals get a 2 or 3 year education.
The workshop will consist of 3 parts; 3D animation concepts, introduction to Blender and a small hand-on project. Each part is roughly 2 hour long so the whole thing would take approximately 7 hours to complete.
I don’t have certificates to give. They would be worthless anyway. Before the fate hurled me into an entirely different career I used to work as a 3D Studio Max instructor back in Turkey. Students were mostly Architects and Civil Engineers. Being professionals they tended to not care too much about the theory and just wanted me to show them which button to click. The biggest challenge was to provide as much essentials as possible without being too boring. After that, it’s a matter or practice.
Let’s keep the attendees limited to 8 people. I ask everyone who would like to join this workshop to donate Hackerspace S$80 (S$40 for HS members). The deal is I will provide a professional grade workshop, and for spiritual reasons I don’t do it for free. However all the proceeds will go to Hackerspace.
