In this participatory workshop by Chok Si Xuan, learn how 3D pens can be used to create three-dimensional forms. Participants will be equipped with basic skills of using this tool, including methods like extrusion and detraction. Working with the sphericon form, participants will learn how to deconstruct and construct this three-dimensional solid by drawing in space with the 3D pen. Accessible yet powerful, 3D pens have the potential to make basic and complex shapes and models.


Participants will bring home their own creations and a 3D pen that can be used for future projects. All materials will be provided and no experience with this tool is required.

  • More details about this programme will be sent to ticket holders on the week of the event.
