Grasshopper Workshop Series


 “workshop-like” is a cyclical workshop-like event taking part at the Object office in Poznań.

The intention of this event is to provide a relaxed and flexible tutoring experience, with only one goal – getting to know Grasshopper better. We will start with a very exhaustive introduction, then venture into the computational geometry world in whichever direction we like.
