Learn to design your own design that we will laser-cut to produce your own bespoke card design.


FABLAB Exeter Learn TO Lates is our brand new concept specifically for you to design at home in your own time with our design materials. Learn some new design skills with us. This workshop can be completed at any time of day!

The session is not live so you will be able to design at a time that suits you. When you purchase a ticket, you will be able to login to Eventbrite and access an online event page. From today, you will see design notes and tutorial videos which will guide you through the designing process. Your design will need to be emailed to us no later than Friday 4th December so we can make it and post it you ahead of Christmas.

Marcus Brown, our Digital Making Tutor, will take you through a short design demonstration using video tutorials so you can create your own, bespoke design. You could either find images online that you'd like to include and add text or you could even draw your own black and white image and import that into your design.

You will need:

To complete this workshop, you will need a laptop or desktop computer with an internet connection. You'll need to download and install free vector design software called Inkscape from inkscape.org

This workshop includes 4 laser-cut cards of the same design in total. You can specify in the checkout how many of each colour you would like. We have red and green available and each card comes with an envelope in the same colour. The cards will have a white piece of paper inside. You can opt to purchase additional sets if you would like to in the checkout process or by emailing us and we can take card payment across the phone.

The aim is to post out your cards within two weeks of the workshop. We have no idea how many we will need to be making!
