Building the Surreal Workshop 101: Space Pirates, Monsters, and Anything that isn’t real

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!


Maximum participants: 10
Recommended minimum age: 16 years
Workshop duration: 3 hrs

Have you ever wanted to build model kits of your favorite vehicles or characters? Have you ever wanted to create unique works of art?

Join Stan Hyde and Monster Attack Team for a hands-on demonstration of how to build a model from the ground up! Whether it’s resin, styrene, or vinyl, we’ll give you the tools you need to create your own unique work of art!

Participants are encouraged (but NOT required) to purchase and bring "any science fiction or fantasy" model kit to the workshop. If you're a beginner and not quite sure where to get such a model, just send an email to programming@vcon.ca and we'll forward you some suggestions for places to look.

Some visual examples of typical "garage kits" can be found (via Google Image search) at the following links:
