Learn to Laser Cut

Brookline Village

SATURDAY, October 26 at 11 AM

Learn the basics of designing on a Glowforge Laser Cutter! How does it work? What sites and tools can you use to find and design prints? Can the same machine really make a messenger bag, create a Settlers of Catan game board, and engrave my drawings on wood? (Hint: Yes.) Participants will use the skills they learn to create and print their own design.

Open to all ages – Children under 9 must be accompanied by an adult. Registration is required. Please register through Eventbrite here!
