WORKSHOP TIMES

ABOUT THIS WORKSHOP
The laser cutters are the easiest and quickest machines in MAKlab to get going on. In this workshop we'll give you a full induction on our laser cutters and talk you through the different features and settings. We'll guide you through setting up a very basic artwork for cutting a small keyring with your artwork on it to take home at the end of the day.

We will be using Inkscape for editing artwork. You are welcome to bring your own laptop to work on. If you'd like to use Inkscape, it is free and downloadable here: http://www.inkscape.org/en/download/.
