Virtual Sculpting Workshop with Seán Forsyth at Fire Station, Dublin

The Reanimation Library New York & CSIA National Gallery
The new ‘Virtual Sculpting’ course will involve the process of creating a 3D model sculpted in virtual reality, where further 3D sculpting and finishing techniques will be continued in Z-Brush 3D software. Virtual Sculpting will take place over a 5 week period, one evening per week, allowing time for the artist to continue their research and development between sessions. The aim of the course is to explore new and emerging workflows for realising and producing 3D objects in digital space.
