In this interactive drop-in session, Black Country Atelier will be giving live demos of 3D scanning and 3D printing technology. Have a go at designing an object in 3D, get yourself 3D scanned and maybe even get a mini 3D selfie made!

Although technology has moved on since the early 1800s, James Watt invented a 3D copying machine in retirement. He often used a bust of himself to copy from and examples of smaller James Watt busts were stored on the shelves in his attic workshop at Heathfiled House.

Free drop-in session, suitable for all the family.
