The organisers of the (en)coding Heritage Network have created and will be delivering a new course, titled Sculpting Digital Cultural Heritage, at the Digital Humanities Oxford Summer School (DHOx2020).


This focuses on methods for capturing, analysing and digitally displaying cultural heritage, including the digital capture of objects and the creation of 3D models, the creation of augmented reality smartphone applications and virtual reality environments.


Lia Costiner and Matthew Nicholls will deliver a lecture on 'Techniques for Capturing and Studying Cultural Heritage Data'. This will be followed by an interactive workshop led by Matthew Nicholls on 'Digital Modelling in SketchUp'. The session offers an introduction to 3D modelling, using the intuitive and accessible 3D-modelling software SketchUp. The aim is for participants with no previous experience of 3D work to get to grips with the software’s fundamental principles and toolset, and undertake various simple 3D modelling tasks.
