Discover this powerful, professional creative tool to unleash your creativity, and make the most of the fantastic machinery on offer at Makerspace NZ.
If you want to use a laser cutter, a vinyl cutter, a CNC Router, a waterjet cutter, make stencils or need to print something very large, you're going to need to wrap your head around "vector" graphics" and the pen tool.
Using this free/open source software, we will learn the lingo and go through the process of creating your own vector graphic and how you can adapt an image from the web.
So come along to this informal and friendly guided workshop and learn to make your projects very much easier - and cheaper!
We'll cover some definite items including:
• introducing you to some of the machines we have here (so you know what you're looking at and what they can do) and examples of work to show just how limitless your projects can be!
• answering any specific questions you might have about how to do something or a project we could use as a demo.
• file types and what your finished file should look like.
• vectorising and why that's important in manufacturing.
Keeping it cool
We deliver a more chilled-out playful experience then your standard rote teaching workshop. And more accommodating to where you want to take things.
We guarantee you'll be more engaged and will get more out of the session if you're at the wheel so too speak. This is aimed at everyone from complete newbies to those with some experience wanting more specific guidance.

Lasers are fun! And they help you make cool stuff! Think jewellery, signs, buttons, frames, boxes, toys and all manner of cool structures! Put family photographs on wood or glass....but don't worry if you've never seen a laser cutter in your life - as you're in good hands - join the group and learn how to design and cut your very own! (Please note that these are learning workshops and not "production sessions" - the sample we make will be a maximum of 100mm x 100mm x 3mm/4mm thick)
At the end of the session, you'll get to take away both your creation and the knowledge of how to set up your next design and safe use of any laser cutter on your own projects so you'll be confident in driving the beasties!
& just look how happy our Alumna, Louise looks...
