About this event

In this hands-on workshop, you will learn the basics of computer aided design, while making a laser-cut windchime. We will be using a graphic design software called InkScape, and learning about "vector" graphics. After designing, we will be exporting to a Universal Laser to cut our parts and then assemble.

This workshop is great for anyone who is comfortable using a computer, and curious about graphic design and laser cutters. There will be plenty of opportunity to ask questions. The skills learned in this class transfer to other media and interfaces, such as using desktop vinyl or paper cutters, or even CNC routers.

Prior experience in graphic design is not necessary, but comfort using a PC will be very helpful.

Beginners are welcome – this class is open to women and gender expansive folks* age 18+.

Meet your instructor, Amanda N. Simons!

*SkillSet welcomes humans of all genders to attend our workshops.
