Our fab Fab Lab staff will teach you the basics of how to use our Epiloge Laser Cutter - The most popular machine in Trafford Fab Lab along with the design software to drive it.
The day will be centred around a theme and attendees will have the chance to personalise a pre set design of a greetings card or keyring which will then be created on the laser cutter.
There is a maximum of 12 people on the How2 Laser Cutter course and places will be allocated on a first come first served basis. Due to the class size and the content to cover, there will not be free reign on what you create, however after completing this workshop, you should feel confident enough to book a timeslot on our open access days to create your own designs.
