[Weeks 7-12] Introduction to 3D Fashion with Marvelous Designer: This workshop series will focus on Marvelous Designer, a realistic cloth simulation program that enables artists to design clothing and costumes easily and professionally. Marvelous Designer adopted real traditional cloth production methods into 3D cloth modelling enabling anyone to create realistic clothing - wrinkles included. From dresses, button-up shirts, puffy jackets, suit pants, or incredible rainbow translucent spiked gowns - what does the future of 3D fashion hold? This is a beginners workshop, and no experience is required in Marvelous Designer.

[Weeks 1-12] Introduction to 3D Texture Artistry with Substance Painter: This workshop series will focus on 3D texture painting with Substance Painter. Substance Painter enables artists to paint directly onto 3D models with ease in the same way that Photoshop enables painting onto 2D images. Add rust or scratches to a reflective dusty metal, or paint checkered fabric across a denim surface, paint in seams and pulled stitches in clothing - any visual detail you can see on the surface of a material is possible to create in Substance. This is a beginners workshop and no experience is required in Substance Painter, though some beginner understanding of 3D models and UVs are required.
