Want to get creative with laser cutting?

Learn to add the personal touch in this two hour introduction to laser cutting. Starting with the basics of designing in Inkscape, you’ll go on to create a beautiful, unique acrylic keyring of your own design.

Who is this course for?

This course is suitable for all abilities, and we welcome beginners with no previous experience of laser cutting or design.

Equipment you’ll need

All materials and equipment will be provided.

What will you learn?

  • How to create a simple design in Inkscape, a free, open source graphics editor.
  • How to transfer your design to the laser cutter, using Laserscript 5.3 software
  • Setting up the laser cutter to watch your design come to life


I have accessibility needs, what kind of physical access do you have?

Unfortunately the MadFabLab is on a first floor with no lift. We are actively pursuing leads on future space which will have improved access, but in the meantime please get in touch and we will work creatively to try and accommodate you.
