Two Day Creative Laser Cutting

This course is suitable for all abilities, and we welcome beginners with no previous experience of laser cutting and etching. Full design support and technical help will be given. You will produce etched and cut pieces from a range of materials, before moving on to a personal project – many people choose to experiment on day 1 and practice using the software and the cutting machine independently, and use day 2 to bring everything together in a small project.

We have a stock of laser materials in the studio, including laser plywood, various colours of acrylic sheet, laser rubber (for making stamps), card, and eco paper. We can chat with you beforehand about any specific materials you might like to use – certain acrylic colours, for example. You can also work with various found materials, such as sandstone, slate, driftwood, feathers and beach glass.

You can even start with something as simple as a favourite quote or song lyric, choose a font, and start etching. The process can be as hands-on as you like – you can do all the design work and operate the laser cutter, or just sit back and enjoy some cake while we do the rest!

We use simple drawing tools on our laptops, and can also work with handwriting, sketches and photographs by scanning them into the computer. These can either be digitised automatically using the software, or we may choose to trace them manually using the software’s drawing tools.

This two day course costs £200 and all equipment and materials are provided, although you may like to bring your own objects to use and sketches and designs to work from. You will make at least one finished piece. The course runs from 10am until 4pm each day.

Spend a relaxing day making bespoke laser cut pieces

One Day Laser Cut Projects

Our one-day laser cutting courses are a perfect introduction to laser cutting, and with computer-aided design kept to a minimum, anyone can make something  both personal and unique, quickly and easily.

Come and make a one-off piece in our studio as a relaxing break, or perhaps as an inspiration – experience a taste of the possibilities of the laser cutter before coming for a longer course.

Whereas our two-day courses offer a more in-depth look at the machine setup, design and file preparation, and the variety of materials, on the one-day course you will work on a set project.

This more focused approach means you will generally work with a single material, and be able to complete a finished piece in just one day.

 

Be it a framed piece of artwork or a statement necklace, you will take away take away a finished piece that you will have made yourself. Spend the morning planning out your piece, before cutting out individual sections from our selection of sheet materials. You will receive full guidance throughout, through planning, cutting and on to assembling in the afternoon.

The one day laser cutting courses cost £100, and run from 10am until 3pm. All your equipment and materials are provided, and you will also  have time to take in the scenery with hot drinks, refreshments and a delicious lunch.

Clueless I was, as to what I wanted to make. But Kris took me through the whole process of laser cutting and gave me inspiration!!! I had a great time and very pleased with my end result.

"Kris took an active interest in what we wanted to use the laser cutter for so that he could tailor the training. Kris gave some excellent advice if we were to purchase our own machines. Very friendly environment, excellent location with fabulous views"

"An absolutely fabulous and informative two days spent with Kris, Laura and Sue. I had Kris' expertise, patience, humour and extensive knowledge on a 1:1 basis throughout the duration. Sue and Laura helped with design ideas. The warmth and hospitality of the team was as good as you can get. I can't recommend this well resourced studio enough, for whatever craft experience you may be interested in."

"This is the second time I have attended this course, this time it was to learn more advanced skills and techniques. Once again a thoroughly enjoyable 2 days with excellent teaching in a creative welcoming environment and lovely homemade food. I cant recommend them highly enough!"

"The location is stunning, in a lovely studio with amazing views of the beach and across the estuary. It was lovely to have the freedom to adapt the schedule along with my ideas, as these migrated the more I learned about what the laser cutter could do. I can't recommend this place enough."
