Want to immortalise yourself in an act of pure self-indulgence? Maybe you’d like to hand a loved one a memento as a reminder of why they love you?

In this 2 hour workshop, you and your partner will have your head 3D scanned and printed to use as a new Facebook profile picture, trinket on the mantelpiece, or as a keepsake! You'll also be able to have a go with the scanners yourselves, being careful not to glitch your partners face!

We’ll give you an overview on 3D printing and scanning, along with some knowledge that you can try at home.

Who is this course for?

This course is suitable for all abilities.

Equipment you’ll need

A head.

Want to surprise someone with your portrait? We also offer this workshop as a drop-in service for just £30! Just contact us directly and we'll get you booked in. Please note this service takes 30-45 minutes, with 3D printing time taking a number of hours - meaning you can scan on your head at lunch and come by at the end of the day!
