Our Games Design Workshop is a FREE and exciting activity for budding games designers.

If you are aged 15-24, with a passion for games and with a desire to meet and work with other creative-minded young people, then this is the perfect opportunity for you.

On the day, you will get an opportunity to try state-of- the-art software used in the video games industry and with the guidance of our Games Tutor create 3D models and work with the latest game engines.

The workshop is split into two sessions with a 45-minute lunch break in between, during which food will be provided for all attendees. In first session, you will be introduced to a software called Sculptris and learn how to create 3D models from start to finish. At the end of the session we will host a friendly competition to see who is able to closest replicate a randomly selected object in 3D.

During the second session, you will work with the Unity game engine and get an insight into how games are really made!

The event takes place at Access to Music Manchester: The Media Centre.

Places are very limited, so please book early!
