What is this workshop?
In this workshop, we’ll take you through the basics of laser cutting and basic vector design using Adobe Illustrator so that you can make your very own custom leather wallet. We’ll help you tweak, decorate, embellish, or add imagery/patterns to your wallet too – so it’ll come off the laser perfectly suited for you (or as a gift!)
But what is laser cutting?
Laser cutters take digital designs and cut them precisely in to flat materials using a high-powered laser beam. Laser cutters can cut in to wood, plastics, fabric, paper and even food. In this class, you’ll be cutting in to leather. With higher power, the laser beam will cut right through, and with lower power, the laser will etch the surface of the material so that you can add decorations or imagery to your wallet design.
