Our NEW and FUN 1 Hour WINS three-week series of design workshops. The workshops are FREE!


FABLAB Exeter is a Digital Makerspace based inside Exeter Library. We know that the Lockdown presents many challenges so we have decided to run these FUN design sessions online for FREE*

These sessions are designed to take about an hour to complete.

These sessions are designed for children and adults aged 8-108yrs who want to learn some 3D design skills. Younger children can take part but an adult will need to support them as some skills may need some help.

*There are two ticket types:

Ticket A To watch the workshop video. FREE!

Ticket B To watch the workshop video PLUS we will 3D print your designs and post them to you following each session. £13.50 for the three sessions and 3 prints.

Parent consent: We require all participants to sign up (even if it's a FREE ticket). Part of the checkout process includes a consent form your your child to take part in our workshops.

Online Event Page

When you have completed your ticket purchase/s, you will have access to an online event page. This page will include links to notes that might be useful for the sessions plus links to the workshop videos (released on each Friday at 10am). You will also be emailed a PDF document on each of the Fridays including links to the workshop video plus notes relevent to each workshop.

What will happen?

Marcus Brown, our Digital Making Tutor at FABLAB Exeter, will take you through a short design demonstration which is a recorded video on Fridays 15th, 22nd and 29th January. You will receive an email on each date with a link to view the video and other notes that might be useful. The demonstration will take approx 30 minutes and then it's your turn to have a go at designing your own! You will be able to watch the video (or parts of the video again) if you get stuck or want to complete the workshop on a different day.

Can't make Fridays? That's fine, each Friday you'll receive an email with a video link and you can watch the video at any time that suits you. If we are 3D printing your designs for you, you'll need to email in your design to us within a week of the email arriving.

Design Projects:

Session 1 (Fri 15 Jan) 3D Designing a 3D Name Keyring.

Session 2 (Fri 22 Jan) 3D Designing a 2021 hanging sign.

Session 3 (Fri 29 Jan) 3D Designing a character or animal face.

You will need:

To complete this workshop, you will need a laptop or desktop computer with an internet connection and sound to hear the video demonstration. You will need an account setup with the 3D Design Website we use called tinkercad.com

If you head to tinkercad.com and click to join, it only takes a couple of minutes to create an account.

3D Prints:

The aim for us is to 3D print your design within a week of the session and to post it out to you using Second Class mail. We have no idea how many people will want their designs printed so we'll print them as quickly as possible! Projects for these workshops will be fairly small and not very deep as, to keep the workshop costs down, we need to use Royal Mail large letter second class post. Please note that we will print your design/s in a single colour and we are unable to offer a choice of colour as we plan to print 4 or 5 different designs in one print run.
