Learn to design your own design that we will laser-engrave onto a gorgeous bamboo-covered notebook. We'll post it to you!

Welcome!

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 Friday 20th November 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

The bamboo-covered notebooks can be used for yourself, or they make beautiful personalised gifts. We can engrave additional notebooks if you want to send them as gifts.

The workshop cost includes one engraved bamboo-covered notebook with one engraved design on the front. Additional notebooks can be paid for in the checkout process or by emailing us and we can take a card payment.

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