Creating Jewelry with Laser Cutting Technology

July 15th  –  19th, 2019

Learn how to use a digital fabrication process to design and make jewelry! Laser cutting is a precise method of cutting a 2D design from materials like wood, felt, and acrylic. Participants will learn how to use Adobe Illustrator to design outlines to guide the laser cutting machine.  By the end of the workshop, participants will understand how to use this technology to produce their own wearable designs from start to finish.  Come learn why laser cutters are a fun and fantastic machine for producing jewelry in alternative materials (no Adobe Illustrator or previous laser cutting experience is required).
