Hello, folks!

Our friends over at danger!awesome would like you to know about a
special class coming up, their 'holiday edition' of their Art of Laser
Cutting class, which begins Monday 11/18 at 7:15pm.


Led by artist and danger!awesome community member Elina Starobinets,
this three-session class will guide you through the entire creative
process of creating laser-cut gifts and art, from concept sketching to
digitizing in Inkscape (an open-source vector-based design program) to
laser cutting the finished piece. Along the way you'll learn artistic
and design considerations as they pertain to laser cutting such as tips
for maintaining structural integrity and the visual balance of positive
and negative space.

At the end of the class you'll walk away with a custom laser cut gift or
art piece, perfect for the upcoming holidays. Templates will be
available for custom greeting cards, invitations, gift boxes,
lampshades, ornaments, and lanterns. You'll have the option of working
with paper, wood, and acrylic, and the techniques you'll learn in this
class will be applicable to working with a wide variety of other
materials including leather and fabric.

This class is open to all experience levels, and new students will be
eligible for a reduced-cost laser training session on 12/9.
