3D Adventure - Sword Making($390) 2 Days, 4 hours daily

8 & 9th Jun 2024: 10:00AM ~ 12:00PM , 1:00PM ~ 3:00PM

Why Sword Making? 

The traditional art of swordsmithing, usually taught only to a few, is a difficult craft that marries form and function. Thankfully with modern technology(hint: 3D printers!), the process is simplified. Learning to make a Katana can offer valuable lessons to a child, mastering craftsmanship, precision and patience. You can expect to learn:

1. Modifying existing 3D models

2. Creating functional joints to give strength and balance

3. Techniques to hide gaps and layer lines

4. Create your own unique Tsuba(sword guard)

5. Sword assembly, polishing and fitting

Best of all, you will feel like a swordsmith when you bring home your very own katana! Sword making is a captivation blend of science and art and wholly amazing experience that is unforgettable.

*Who should join?

Students who have gone through 3D modelling and printing workshops, or are proficient with TinkerCAD and 3D printing. *Important* Students with no prior experience will struggle with the lessons.

All of our HOLIDAY  workshops are full!

Thank you for your interest and we look forward to see you for our end of year workshops in Nov/Dec!
