Let’s draw over the fear of the blank paper! We’ll recap and cover the basics to Product Design Sketching: it’s all about communicating ideas. Then we will focus on increasing your existing sketch ability. Learn how to give form to basic objects, shading & material properties. Upgrade and increase the readability of your sketches to make them interesting and clear! With one-to-one feedback and tips for digital drawing with Photoshop or Sketchbook pro.

Anything you like to doodle and sketch with goes. Bring your sketchbook or previous works you struggle with or want to improve. We can have a look at it depending on the day.

To make the most of this workshop, you can bring bic pens (black or blue), – markers (grey and soft colours), felt pen (for thicker lines), pencil variations and sharpeners, a sketchbook, white paper (printer paper), tracing paper (if you already have it) or thin paper…

Frederik Vanden Bore studied Product Development in Antwerp and Vehicle Design at the RCA. He now works as a product and transportation designer. His work for clients ranges from aviation and consumer products to concept design. He is always keen on creating some kick-ass sketches. Check out some of his work!

Makerversity collaborated with umbrella organisation SHIELD to launch SHIELD’s first new 3D printing facility at Somerset House, with support from Farnell. SHIELD partner organisations will be developing new designs for sustainable masks and visors in addition to other critical PPE on a mass scale. As supplies of life-saving PPE run critically low, we need to find a way to make it ourselves. So SHIELD was formed – a collaboration of industry leaders united to create innovative solutions to meet the PPE demand. The Makerversity 3D printing hub is now live, starting to create the supply we desperately need.
