The nature of the museum visit is changing: emerging 3D printing technologies are providing different possibilities for engaging and interacting with physical museum objects. During the three workshops, participants will be provided an overview of 3D printing in museum contexts and will also build and print their very own 3D model. No prior experience in 3D printing is necessary. Anyone interested in how 3D printing is used in museums is welcome!

Participants will also have the opportunity to exhibit their 3D printed models at the Hunt Museum in Limerick for a period of time!

Ticket price: €60 for 3 workshops (Participants should be available for all three workshops)

The workshops will take place at the FabLab in Limerick, just across the road from the Hunt Museum in Limerick. This series of events is organised by the Interaction Design Centre and the Hunt Museum in Limerick in collaboration with the Limerick chapter of IxDA, and are part of the Limerick City of Culture 2014 programme.
