Throughout the month of April, Lizz will be hosting free, live streaming classes through her YouTube channel. Each week, she will guide you step-by-step to make your own rings and pendants, offering a new style each week.
Each class will be led as a hands-on demo where you will walk through the 3D modeling process using Tinkercad, a free, online software made by Autodesk. You will be able to ask questions live and each class will be recorded and available to watch after.
Lizz will also provide guidance on how to use online 3D printing software to have your jewelry fabricated.
Tinkercad is an easy to learn software, however learning to work in 3-dimensional space can take some time and patience. To keep the weekly classes short and focused please be sure to take the Introduction To Tinkercad class before you join the weekly sessions. In this intro class, Lizz will walk through the interface and basic tools offered in Tinkercad.
