This course is suitable for all abilities, including those with no prior experience of laser cutting and engraving. There are many things that you can create; beautiful engravings of photographs, components for a 3D design, plates for printing and much more.
Over the course of the day I will take you through preparing designs, sketches and photographs for cutting and engraving using illustrator, photoshop and the laser cutting software. You will product a selection of cut and engraved pieces and I have a variety of materials available including paper, card, plywood, laser rubber (for making stamps) and various colours of acrylic. You may wish to bring some of your own materials such as fabric, driftwood, feathers, stone or glass.
This is more of a crash course designed to give you a basic understanding of the laser cutter. It's a good option if you are thinking of buying a laser cutter and just want to learn the basics. If you would like more time to experiment with the machine or feel you need more time to learn the skills please see the 2 day course here - http://englandesigns.com/creative-laser-cutting-2-day-course/
Upon completion of this course you will be able to book time on the laser cutter to use by yourself.
The course runs from 10 until 4.
This two day course costs £100 including materials, lunch, refreshments and of course, cake! Please bring any objects that you may wish to use, pencils, pens, sketchbook, any other drawing materials and any designs that you can work from. I have a selection of materials including, paper, card, plywood, laser rubber, coloured sheets of acrylic and slate. If you wish to use a large quantity of a particular material a small charge may apply.
