Event description

Description

Want to upgrade your photography skills? This 90 minute workshop will teach you an easy way to make 3D models of historic monuments and ancient artefacts!

Game designers aren’t the only people who make digital 3D models – archaeologists, curators, and conservators do it too. In fact, ‘photogrammetry’ is now one of the quickest and easiest ways for archaeologists to share their discoveries online, in 3D!

Never done anything like this before? Don’t worry - the method is surprisingly simple.

Join us for a 90 minute crash course and we’ll show you how to take the right kinds of photos, and how you turn them into a 3D model. By the end, you’ll be able to create your own virtual artefacts, monuments, and whatever else takes your fancy.

Grab this chance to improve your skills, and learn to take photos in 3D!

Is this event suitable for children?

This event is aimed at adults, and familes with children or teenagers aged 12+. If you have any younger children, please email bookings@digventures.com before booking. Children must be accompanied by a participating adult.

Do I need to book?

Yes, booking is highly recommended. We only have 10 places for each session! If you can no longer come, please let us know so we can offer your place to someone else.

Do I need to bring anything?

No, you don’t need to bring anything. A camera or a smart phone is optional. Other than that, DigVentures will provide all the instruction that you’ll need to start doing photogrammetry for yourself.
