SCULPTING & ANATOMY

Students will learn the traditional way of sculpting using clay, with a heavy emphasis on anatomy. Still the preferred method amongst professional sculptors today, clay sculpting is able to translate finer details from mould to casts faithfully.

3D PRINTING & BASIC ENGINEERING

3D printing is increasingly being used in toys production as well as product design and rapid prototyping. Students will learn processes and techniques to design their ideas into physical assets, and also managing 3D files (e.g. ZBrush)  for 3D Printing. They will also learn to integrate basic engineering processes into these prototypes.

MOULDING & CASTING

Moulding and casting is a critical aspect of toy production and some aspect of product design. This skillset allows indie makers to make multiple copies of their genesis sculpt or asset. Once the sculpts are complete, students will learn the professional techniques to create clean silicone moulds for their perfect casts.
