The laser is easy and fun to work with and prepare designs for. The high speed and low costs of the laser are great for creative work and experimenting.

Base of the workshop is getting to know the laser and what you can do with it. We use the results of last try out workshops and provide worked out examples for them who want to follow an instruction as well as opportunity to work out your own projects.

We use mostly paper, felt and thin plywood for convenience and their low price. Acrylics will be demonstrated. I already know that some participants want to work with blockprinting laser engraved pictures and print with cutout shapes. An etching press, ink and printing utensils are available for this purpose. Possible other subjects are making good tab and slot connectors, folding lines, making a lay out for cutting, line width variations, organising the work efficiently.

After this workshop you can make your own laser designs and use the laser of Wowlab or go for the bigger laser at Fablab Saxion Enschede or Leering Enschede (Stainless steel! Yes!). Or order it online (in the workshops some online services will be mentioned)

- Transformer

Fall 2017, 6-8 persons (age 16+) Under preparation together with Tetem.

Working creatively with various materials, oriented towards design and making a transformer. A transformer is a character from a movie and a toy , widely known all over the world. It changes shape, usually from a robot like technical machine into a car. Yes, it is definitely a technological idea. But do not think that this will be a young bow workshop. We will work out how materials can be combined, how to make the parts movable, what materials to choose and use various techniques to work with the materials. Idea making is also an important part, we will work on creative combinations of materials and what they can offer for the transformers function.

During four successive weeks, every week a three-hour class / workshop, will be held, age 16+.

Week 1: welcome and introduction to Wowlab and the tools, explanation and and This will be very practical and hands on. An effective way of designing will be demonstrated and applied in one of the classes.
