    Laser engraving is a fun and interesting skill that can range from an enjoyable hobby to a lucrative business opportunity. Engraving can be used to personalize everyday objects, such as coasters, keychains, and barware. Lasers can even cut materials with details that are impossible for other tools.

    In this class, you’ll learn the basics about laser engraving technology, the dos and don’ts of laser safety and look at a few examples of the laser engraver’s abilities. We’ll also discuss graphic design basics as they apply to the laser.

    This course is open to everyone from novice makers first starting to create to veteran craftspeople looking to expand their skillset.

    You do not have to be a MakerspaceCT member to attend, but all students must sign up online at the link below and pay tuition to attend this class.

    PLEASE NOTE: Makerspace is an 18+ only facility.
