bear drills: laser cutting class (zero to hero)

What we are doing:

Lasers are fun!  And they make stuff!  Think jewelry, signs, buttons, frames, boxes, toys....but don't worry if you've never seen a laser cutter in your life.  You're in good hands - join the group and learn how to design and cut your very own .... well we'll leave a little surprise in there! You'll get to take away your creation and the knowledge of how to set up a design and use the laser cutter on your own projects.

Skill required: 1

Your teacher will be:
Lee Bennett

After leaving the British Navy, Lee Bennett created special effects with Weta Workshop, single handedly subdivided his property, renovated a boat, became a commercial pilot, built a plane in his conservatory, and built WW1 vehicles and planes (in a proper factory this time).

Lee Bennett is one of the founders of Wellington MakerSpace, the first floor space at 6 Vivian St they’ve outfitted provides a workshop on steroids. It is specifically provided for those looking to make one-offs, prototypes and sellable items from plastic, metal and wood – but who don’t have either their own facility nor the scope or scale to necessarily approach larger scale engineers or fabricators.

Cost: $40 includes materials, tuition and laser
