Blender Workshop in Vancouver, BC, August 24


The University of British Columbia Fisheries Centre is hosting a free, full-day Blender workshop on Sunday, the 24th of August in Vancouver, BC.  The workshop will be lead by Mike Pan and Dalai Felinto, both of whom are working with the Fisheries Centre on the underwater visualization. (We reported earlier on their Fish Population Data Visualisation project with the Blender game engine).

The University of British Columbia Fisheries Centre is hosting a one day long Blender workshop On Sunday, 24th of August on campus that functions as a workshop and get-together for Blender users around Greater Vancouver.

At this point, we are thinking of targeting it towards intermediate users, but things can change.

This event will be held at the Fisheries Centre at UBC's Point Grey Campus.  It can be easily access with numberous transit route(B-line 99, 84), paid parking is also available.

Cost and Logistics
The event will be free of charge.  Due to the limited computers we have, attendees are welcomed to bring their own laptop computer for the event.  Wifi connection will be available.

I have a LONG history with Blender - I wrote some of the earliest Blender tutorials, worked for Not a Number and helped run the crowdfunding campaign that open sourced Blender (the first one on the internet!). I founded BlenderNation in 2006 and have been editing it every single day since then ;-) I also run the Blender Artists forum and I'm Head of Community at Sketchfab.


  1. Sounds like it could be good. I think it is best that it is an intermediate class, it would kinda be a waste if it was for beginners, as they might quit blender and it is only a 1 day course. Can't learn much in 1 day if you don't know what your doing. It would be kinda cool to hear what they talk about.

  2. I love the idea of a free Blender workshop...."the first hit is free...."

    Anyone interested in starting something like this in Australia?

    I'm up for helping to organise something like this in Sydney or Brisbane.

  3. So nice to hear about this.... its sort of in my neck of the woods, as Canada is a very BIG place, geographically-speaking... and only one time-zone away!

  4. and you're saying it only now? I have already my weekend booked, and that's the first time it's happening in my city!

  5. I'd love to have gone if there had been just a few more days' notice I live on Vancouver Island and am only a ferry ride (or quick plane flight) away, but I've got my weekend already planned.

  6. It's always a bit of a dilemma when to post these events - if we do it too long in advance, people will forget about them. I figured four days was fair enough..

  7. for those blend artist can not make it to free shop blender just simply start your own free shop in your local library,so feel inspire from these high profile blender shop events.


  8. Its close. Only a time zone (1162 km) away! For Canada, thats pretty close. Still, I won't be able to make it. Sounds interesting though.
