Clinics & Workshops
The sessions where our fellow modellers pass on their knowledge and skills are some of the most memorable
and worthwhile activities at any convention. At Convention
2020 the people giving them will be the best we can find. And it won’t be all classroom sessions because under this umbrella we’re also planning some great hands-on workshops.
At a typical clinic an expert in some aspect of railway modelling shares his or her knowledge, tips and skills. In this scene from the 2014 convention in Hamilton the special guest, Lance Mindheim, is passing on his insights into layout design. Our clinic programme while not finalised yet will cover a wide range of prototypes, skills and techniques.
Our workshops will feature experienced modellers actually getting stuck in to a modelling task. There will be several going on at the same time so that you can move between them, ask questions—and even have a go yourself with the help of an expert.
It’s early days and at this point (early 2019) the actual clinics programme is still “under construction” as they say. But it’s no secret that Kathy Millatt will be conducting some of the clinics and workshops. Her, and the other topics will be finalised over the coming months so please check back from time to time.
Right now we’re happy to receive suggested clinic/workshop topics and presenters, just email firstname.lastname@example.org
The clinics at TrainZ18 were typical of what can be expected at Convention 2020
Here Trevor Corrin is explaining his approach to 3D printing. 3D printing is likely to be a clinic topic at Convention 2020.
This could be you in these pictures. If you or someone you know has something worthwhile to pass on, your suggestions are very welcome, just send an email to email@example.com.
