Three Things; Course Spotlight – Creative Laser Cutting March 2014

Creative Laser Cutting Course March 2014

On March 1st and 2nd we had two lovely guests in the studio doing our Creative Laser Cutting workshop with Kris. The course began with fresh coffee and flapjacks and then out onto the beach to collect and photograph. before lunch sketches were made and digitised, photographs traced and laser cutting began. The weather was unseasonably gorgeous so we ate our lunch outdoors on the picnic table. Our guests then got stuck in to laser cutting and creating beautiful objects.

Creative laser cutting printing with laser cut print blocks

After the morning walk along the coastline, Helen found she was drawn to foliage. Helen then laser cut print blocks with a leaf design she made by tracing a photograph of a leaf on the computer and cutting out a laser rubber print block. Here she is experimenting with fabric paint and her unique custom laser cut print block.

Laser cut acrylic interlocking hearts

Darren has a strong interest in geometry and ancient mystical symbols, here he has laser cut an interlocking heart design on black acrylic. Darren brought the design with him as a JPEG and Kris helped him to convert it into a vector format for the laser cutter to work with.

Laser cut foliage

Helen’s leaf design was initially cut out of cereal box card to see how it would work and to allow any adjustments of thickness before cutting some final pieces out of wood.

Helen wrote in our guest book “Thanks so much for a really inspiring time!…I will be encouraging anyone I can to come along”

Darren commented “Fantastic Place…All that you need they provide…If we can we shall return.”
