Introduction to Laser Cutting for Educators

31 May 2022 — 14 Jun 2022


Introduction to Laser Cutting for Educators

Professional Skills for Creative Industries

 

This short course is designed to introduce third-level creative arts educators to laser cutters. Participants will learn how to create digital files and use laser cutters. The course responds to the need for creative arts educators to enhance their professional development and support novel work in their own practice and by their students.

During the course, you will learn to:

  • Generate basic 2D vector files that are suitable for laser cutting,
  • Select appropriate materials,
  • Use laser cutters safely, and
  • Make a bespoke piece of laser cut work.

You will be assessed through participation/attendance and on the successful completion of a piece of laser cut work.


Timetable

 

The course is delivered on campus from 10am to 1pm on:

Tuesday 31st May, Thursday 2nd June, and Tuesday 14th June.

 

Note: Self-directed study will be necessary between sessions to generate artwork files.

Foundational experience with 2D vector drawing software (e.g. Illustrator/CAD) is advised.
