There is a demand for 3D art and animation skills in Ireland, in the animation industry and games industry. Blender is a free and open source 3D creation suite. It supports the entirety of the 3D pipeline — modelling, rigging, animation, simulation, rendering, compositing, and motion tracking, even video editing and game creation.
Workshops are ideally suited to introducing a new skill such as 3D modelling. You get to learn a lot in a short period — essential for anyone with a busy schedule.
Workshops are great for testing to see if you enjoy 3D modelling before committing to full-time education. Workshops help you commit yourself to your learning more than learning at home. It is much easier to concentrate when there is some external accountability. Learning with other people is also fun. You get to share your mistakes and learn faster together.
In Mind Cauldron's upcoming two-day beginners workshops in 3D modelling, participants will practice the basics of Blender's interface, box modelling, UV unwrapping, and rigging. The goal is to deliver a practical workshop that teaches everything you need to know to leave the workshop with enough skills and confidence to create 3D art assets by yourself and continue your learning online. The approach puts practicality first.
The instructor will guide you through the processes of 3D modelling in Blender. While you follow along, you are building up your 'muscle memory' of the skills. This approach will make 3D modelling become a more comfortable skill to use.
