** Note: this event will be held in person at the makerspace. Read our Covid-19 requirements for attendees here.**

Looking to make versatile, stylish and personalized room decor, or gifts for the holidays? Well look no further! Join us for a design-and-make class event and learn to make your own personal designs in Lightburn, followed by a laser etch session to create unique modular acrylic lamps

What you get to take home: Your own acrylic lamp with removable display pieces that you can swap out for every season or occasion.

Prerequisites: None!

What we’ll provide: Plug-in light base, acrylic panels to cut and etch, a tutorial on Lightburn

What to bring: A can do attitude!

If you’d like to think about your design ahead of time, you can:

Do a Google Image Search for what you’d like to etch

Use the [Tools] button to the right to limit it to:

  • Black and white
  • Image size: Large
  • Type: Clip Art  (note: including the words “silhouette”, “mesh” or “icon” in your search will give you similar results)

Save the image or email it to yourself, and we’ll help you take it from there in the workshop!

Open to members and non-members.  Want to join the space?  Here is the link to become a member.
