Zoom Workshop 2021

The first workshop for 2021 will happen next Wednesday 27th January at 7pm. Bill Chambers will be presenting  “CGI “(Computer Graphic Imagery) – specifically the latest innovations in rendering human faces via computer… Bill always delivers with his presentations and I’m sure this will be no different. Not sure what is CGI, and how you could use this technique, then join us for our first Zoom workshop for 2021.

Invites will be emailed to all Zoomers from last year. If you do not receive an invite by midday Wed please contact me. We also welcome any new Zoom members, please contact me so I can add you to the mail-out list
