Event description

Description

This skills-focused Laser Cutting course is designed to take attendees from novice to laser-ready for designing and making laser cut projects. You’ll leave with opensource software for designing, editing, and “printing” laser-cut items, along with your own laser-cut sample project to take home. Laser cut designs are limited to a 5” by 5” design in wood or plexiglass (with both etching and cutting capabilities) and are available to pick up the day after class. We encourage but (don’t require!) you to bring your own laptop. All levels of experience are welcome. Open to ages 7 and up, although children should be accompanied by an adult.

Instructor: Andy Wiseman. Andy teaches many “Make It & Take It” makerspace workshops, introducing students to new equipment and helping them begin their own journeys to prototyping, constructing, innovating and more. Andy learned many of his laser cutting skills while building a fully operational (rolling, spinning, and speaking) Star Wars R2D2 replica (pictured above).

In Partnership with: Staunton Parks and Rec! You can also register in person at the Staunton Parks and Rec offices, or at the Staunton Makerspace. We look forward to seeing you there.
