Instructional Guide to Foam Crafting
June 20, 2017 @ 11:00 am - 12:30 pm$35
This instructional workshop will teach you all you need to know to get started with creating foam crafted pieces, like foam armour, props, etc. This workshop differs from our "Beginners Guide to Foam Crafting" as it does not include a hands on portion and is purely about explaining and demonstrating techniques.
This class is a companion to the 'Foam Armour Making' workshop that will be running after this one. It is not essential that you attend both, but highly advised if you are interested in making your own costumes or using the techniques from this workshop in a hands on format.
What You Will Learn
Beginner to intermediate techniques for foam crafting
How to take your design and make it into a 3D object
Create your own foam project from scratch that you can take home
What You Get
Tuition by an experienced foam crafter with all tools and materials required to demonstrate various techniques.
We have a lounge area and coffee machine for non-participants to use.
An overall, fun learning experience
