Event Description:
Come prepare for the upcoming holidays by creating some of your very own custom winter holiday décor using the power of lasers! Laser cutting machines provide a wide range of opportunities and possibilities for designing and fabricating goods. The versatility, speed, and precision of a laser cutter enables makers, hobbyists, and entrepreneurs to produce everything from simple machine concepts and prototypes to packaging to invitations and photo engraving.

This one-day workshop provides an overview of the technical and safety aspects of laser cutting and is designed for those with no prior experience using a laser cutter. Participants will learn: 
·         How to properly operate the laser cutter
·         How to design a digital file for laser cutting using Inkscape software
·         How to use the laser cutter to produce a custom acrylic hanging ornament and a custom holiday card stamp
