Art Forensic Workshop: 3D - SOLD OUT


Missed out on this workshop? You can still listen to Susan Hayes talk about Forensic Facial Reconstruction in Brisbane on 17 August.

Over two days delve into the fascinating world of 3D (clay) facial reconstruction with Dr Susan Hayes, a facial anthropologist, using her forensic research methods developed through the University of Melbourne.

Starting with a replica skull of an adult European man, participants will work in pairs to create his unique facial appearance. From the skull to the skin this intensive hands-on workshop will cover different aspects of facial anatomy, function, evolution and individual differences.

Tickets: $150
Bookings essential and limited tickets are available. Participants must be over 18 years. Price includes meals and refreshments.

Dates and times

Day 1: Friday 18 August, 4pm – 9pm
Day 2: Saturday 19 August, 10am – 4pm

Dr Hayes will focus on the form and function of underlying facial anatomy (including how to model each aspect), the anatomical and evolutionary functions of the face and on how every unique skull relates to the shapes of every unique individual both living and deceased.

All materials are provided and no prior experience, artistic or scientific, is required or expected.

NB: Because you won’t be able to take your work home, you may wish to bring a camera to record your progress.
