Participants will choose from one of three template designs that they will modify to their requirements, cut/engrave and go home with something they are made themselves.
– a plywood handy box
– a (faux-)leather coin wallet
– a plywood name-plate for (e.g.) a child’s bedroom or a house name
These will be made on FabLab’s 40 watt & 60 watt CO2 Epilog lasercutters. (Materials will be provided.)
The aims of the course are:
– to see what can be done with a modern technology like laser cutting.
– to allow participants to make an informed decision whether to participate in the longer six-session “Building Laser Cutting Skills” course.
The session will include a very brief tour of all the other modern technologies available in FabLab. It will also provide options for accessing external laser-cutting services.
The course is open to adults of any ages/backgrounds and to children over 10-years old if accompanied by a supervising adult. Class size will be for a maximum of 8 participants.
