Event description

Description

The Bellingham Makerspace's Laser Cutter is extremely powerful, extremely versatile and extremely large. Members can use it to cut lots of flat materials (wood, plywood, acrylic plastics, leather) and engrave dozens of others (glass, ceramic, marble). This 1 Hour class teaches you how to safely operate the laser, what materials are recommended and rules and regulations for doing it all safely.

  • Class Length: 1 Hour

  • Prerequisites: None, but previous experience with a vector design program like Adobe Illustrator Inkscape (which is free and open source) is helpful.

  • Each student will cut and engrave their own acrylic keychain
