“Crafty builders” 3D modellers

In partnership with RAMPA Lab and CtrlArt 3D studio


The date of March 4 will mark the beginning of our new partnership with RAMPA Lab from the Kersnikova street in Ljubljana with a series of workshops about 3D modelling and advanced digital craftsmanship for the youth. In the course of 12 workshops organised at Rampa, young modellers will get to know the advanced 3D virtual world under the guidance of graphic designers from the CtrlArt 3D studio. The most eager participants will be able to enhance their knowledge in another series of workshops at RogLab, where they will be able to develop their 3D-creations from virtual to physical objects. The cost-free programme has been designed for 12- to 15-year-olds.

In March, workshops about 3D-modelling of the “Crafty builders” animated characters will be held at Rampa, including the presentation of the entire production process behind the creation of 3D-animations. In the course of 12 workshops, young modellers will enter and get familiar with the advanced 3D virtual world. In the open-code graphic computer program called Blender, they will create 3D objects, environments, characters and animations, building their own virtual city of the future. In addition to this, they will be able to practise their English. After leaving the virtual world they will embark on the more tangible digital craftsmanship. The most eager modellers fascinated by the “hands-on” approach will get the opportunity to learn and create using advanced digital production machines. At RogLab, they will implement their virtual 3D creations with the help of the technical team by using a 3D printer, laser cutter and CNC cutter.

Application and information:
Our workshops target 12- to 15-year-olds fascinated by the world of 3D animation. Although no previous knowledge or experience is required, we recommend that the participants bring their own laptops, and they should be very keen and ready to spend quite some time learning and creating with us.

The workshops are free. Due to the limited number of places, you need to apply in advance at
