The Melbourne Blender Society is a special interest group for users and developers of Blender. If you use Blender professionally or as a hobby, or even if you think you might like to use it, come along and see what others in Melbourne are up to. Our meetings consist of presentations, tutorials and discussions about Blender. If you feel like presenting or showing off some work, have a look at the Get Involved page to find out how.

In 2017 we will be meeting at 6pm on the fourth Thursday of every second month, with one exception in January for the Australia Day.

The dates for 2017 are:

  • Friday 29 January 2017
  • Thursday 23 March 2017
  • Thursday 25 May 2017
  • Thursday 27 July 2017
  • Thursday 28 September 2017
  • Thursday 23 November 2017


For 2017 we will be meeting at the York Butter Factory 62-66 King St, Melbourne CBD.

  1. Hi there,
    I found this group while googling. I am looking for a short, classroom based Blender noob course in Melb. i have tried some online tutorials but i get lost. i volunteer at the University of Western Australia’s virtual campus in Second Life and hope to create to mesh assets for this environment. do u know if a short course exists to impart Blender basics? any help would be appreciated.
    C 🙂

    • Hi Carmel,

      As far as I know, there is no classroom based training based in Melbourne at this time. I provide Blender Training as a tailored course for individual. I can help you no matter what you experience level is, be it complete beginners through to advanced users.

      If you are interested please contact me on mkab (at) pacific.net.au. Thanks.

    Hi C,

    Some of us offer tutorship in Blender. We are based in Melbourne, but maybe we could do something using video conferencing. Please write again using the form on the Get Involved page [1], and we’ll be in touch.

    Hi Rob,

    Melbourne Blender Society Meetings are free! At the moment (June 2014) they are held at VPAC in Carlton every second month. See the January posts for 2014 dates.

    The best way to find out is to sign up to Follow us on this website (there should be a Follow button in the bottom right hand corner of your screen). Then you’ll get a post when ever we are having a meeting or special event…

    Hope to see you at a meeting soon!
