Laser Cutting Part Duex…
For women… A workshop in cutting stuff up with a laser!
Get your designs off the page and cut them out of acrylic, wood, paper, card or fabric… using the power of light!
If the thought of laser-cutting, circuit design and prototyping fills you with excitement and/or confusion, we have the perfect antidote for you!
Maybe you have seen cute acrylic jewellery, engraving, or delectable vinyl decals, or you have a world-changing invention that you have to figure out how to make the cogs and parts… then this is the place for you!
The workshop will consist of an intro to image formatting of designs, and laser cutting!
