Join us at MakeATX for a laser cutting workshop where you will learn the basics of laser cutting and get a chance to etch a personalized, laser cut design tool.
Have you added laser cutting to your design tool kit yet? Join us at MakeATX for a laser cutting workshop where you will get a chance to etch a personalized, laser cut design tool on one of our three machines. At this workshop we will teach a quick lesson on the basic capabilities of laser cutters, the array of laser safe materials, and some special techniques for tackling unique laser cut projects.
At MakeATX we help designers bring laser cut projects to life, ranging from intricate wedding invitations to large wooden signage and everything in between. We hope this workshop will inspire designers to create beautiful objects with a new skill set and a fresh perspective on the accessibility of laser cutting in Austin.
No experience is necessary for this workshop and curiosity is always welcome!
