Your chance to design at home with FabLab Exeter.

Welcome to FabLab Exeter's ONLINE Workshops (There are 5 in total available for the 2021 School Summer Holiday).

This workshop is to design a laser-cut and laser-engraved animal shaped keyring. We'll teach you how to create your own vector based outline design and then how to add a design to engrave onto your animal. The keyring will be made from 3mm clear acryllic.

How does this work?

This workshop is suitable for anyone in the UK. The videos are recorded in English.

From Saturday 31st July to Friday 27th August, you will have access to an online page (Held inside Eventbrite) which will include a link to a Workshop PDF document. When opened, it will provide notes and links to tutorial videos and templates (where required).

You can purchase this workshop anywhere up to the 20th August 2021. The workshop materials will not be added to the online page until the 31st July.

You can then decide when to create your design by following the video tutorials and email your design into us. We'll make it and let you know when it's ready for collection or we will post it to you (2nd class post) if you have selected a ticket with postage.

All designs must be emailed to us no later than Friday 27th August. You can email them before - our aim is to make your design within two weeks of receiving your design. We will email you to let you know when it's ready to collect These workshops are recommended for anyone 8 to 108 years. Younger children can take part but adult support is recommended.

You will need:
