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 two days 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.
The first day will concentrate on learning the software and laser cutter, creating a series of small project to get you used to the process. The second day will give you the chance to experiment further and undertake a larger project of your choice.
If you feel like 2 days is too long and just want a crash course in learning the skills rather than undertaking bigger projects then the 1 day course may be more suitable for you. Please see here for more info http://englandesigns.com/copy-of-creative-laser-cutting-1-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 each day.
This two day course costs £180 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.
