One Day Laser Cutting – Custom Wooden Map -Weekday Friday
16th February , 2018 @ 10:00 am - 3:00 pm£100
Our 1 day laser cutting courses make a great introduction to laser cutting, offering the perfect setting to make something personal and unique, quickly and easily.
On our laser cut map course, you will begin by choosing a location from an online map – somewhere special to you, perhaps a meeting place, a favourite holiday destination or your childhood home – then trace around all the separate elements using the computer. Simply trace the path of the roads, mark out the buildings and then combine these in different ways to make your custom map.
Choose from a selection of woods, including birch, oak and walnut, to show roads, surrounding areas and buildings. You can inset the buildings into the landscape, perhaps have some stand proud of their surroundings, or lightly etch them into the background. Cut a prominent feature from mirrored acrylic, combine veneers and experiment with different colours, creating matching and contrasting features – it’s completely up to you.
Once your design is complete we will begin to cut the pieces you need on the laser cutter. Full guidance is given throughout, and all the necessary tools are provided.
One everything is ready, spend the afternoon assembling your map and setting it into a deep box frame. Etch a dedication, grid reference or quote and attach it to the mount, the finishing touch to a truly unique piece of artwork to take home.
This one day course costs £100 and includes tuition, use of all tools and materials, with lunch, refreshments, and hot drinks provided. The course runs from 10am until 3pm.
