Laser Cutting and Jewelry Fabrication


Sign up for this class to learn more about jewelry making on the Laser Cutter.  This class will be co-taught by our Jewelry Fabrication instructor Ray Atnip and Heather Lee, our creative genius behind our Laser Cutting art classes.  Together, they are going to take participants through the process of developing resin inlaid mosaics on laser cut jewelry.

What to Bring?

Basic materials will be supplied by the instructor.  If you have very small stones or other cool objects that you want to include in your pieces, feel free to bring them.  (If you’re not sure, bring them anyway!)

Ray Atnip will bring some copper and silver wire, if people want to make earrings or other jewelry mounts for their laser cut pieces.  And we have some costume jewelry we can scavenge from (bring your own if you have some!).

Depending on the participants, we are thinking of this as a “Sip ‘n Make” class series that will repeat on a monthly basis.  Come and join us for a fun Friday evening!

Hacker Lab Resident Members: Please bring $10 to give the instructor for materials fees.  Other attendees, the materials fees are built into the class fee.
