Build your own Space Saber! Learn electronics, decorate your hilt, build a blade. Take home LED Saber prop

About this event

Make your very own Space Saber! Sabers can be made specifically for sparring, for juggling and flow, and just for looking AMAZING! These Space Sabers are fun, durable, and provide hours of entertainment.

You will learn to solder your electronics, add the lights of your choice, controllers and batteries. Pick from our assortment of 3D printed parts to make it look like YOUR saber. Build your own blade, cut to your desired length. Once you've made the basics, your saber can be upgraded to include sound, color changing blades, and even animations (additional charges may apply).

Design and build your own saber, and at the end of the class take it home with you! All parts and materials are included in the class cost. Email Anthony Roselli to schedule the class at another time.

Class Length: 1.5 - 2 hours
Prerequisites: None

Instructor Bio: Anthony Roselli has been a saber enthusiast for many years. After learning about flow arts and contact fencing with sabers, he helped form the Bellingham Order of the Saber in 2018. In 2019 he began working on making his own sabers at the Bellingham Makerspace and is now Bellingham's resident expert in saber construction.
