TryIt: DIY pop vinyl

Booking required?
$80 Full ($40 Concession)

A TryIt is where we're trialling something new. They're programs that are a little rough around the edges (no pun intended) –  prototypes that are a little prone to not going entirely to plan! The price is cheap and it's your chance to have input into a new idea at the outset.

DIY pop vinyl is one of them. Over four sessions you'll design, 3D print, cast and package your very own original, collectible toys from (almost) scratch. You've seen them in the shop, you might have one on your desk, so now's your chance to make one! 

All the materials and training will be provided, with all the (beta) lesson plans being made available for download, which might be of interest if you're an educator looking for professional development...
