Join Boston Hanse Group and Transported for Boston Unfurled workshops, a project to create a set of 20 flags and finials to represent and celebrate Boston today. The flags will be used at future community events & festivals as well as being taken abroad to proudly represent Boston at New Hanse events in Europe.  The project starts with an exhibition about using flags in this way and how Boston has been represented in design form in the past, at Boston Guildhall from Wednesday 24 January to Wednesday 14 February

Finial Workshops – 3D Printing – with artist Kathleen Smith

The finial workshops will be an introduction to 3D printing and thinking of ideas for creating the final finials. 

We will discuss what 3D printing is, how it works, the materials that can be used and how you would do 3D printing. There will be a 3D printer at the workshops that will produce small items so you can see how it works.

In the workshop you will produce a 3D sculpture from foam using carving techniques, the finished object will be scanned and converted into a file which will be used as inspiration for the final finials.

This workshop is open to 8 participants. You can attend one of the two dates.

Open to participants aged 16+.


All workshops are FREE and at Boston Guildhall on Fridays from 11- 3pm.
