    Last year, we sponsored a VR Sculpting Workshop, the first of its kind, in partnership with Mold3D. Master sculptor and Oculus Designer Gio Nakpil taught sculpting in Medium to students from Disney, Laika, Sony, Cartoon Network, Dreamworks, Henson and others. This workshop was a highly selective and intensive course, a successful experiment for teaching with, and within, VR.

    We're hosting our next workshop with Gio in San Francisco, August 4th & 5th! Spots are limited!
