Art & Design Teacher CPD Course - Laser Craft
In this 1 day course, you will explore a variety of approaches in your chosen discipline. With more than 15 years of secondary teaching experience, I am confident that by the end of the day you will have enjoyed: - learning new processes/approaches - making something for yourself - making resources - having a chance to share ideas - leaving with everything you need to start teaching this tomorrow (including SoW and risk assessments) and a kit list You'll be addicted to lasering with just one workshop. The options and possibilities are mind blowing! You will spend the day designing and lasering your own pieces. We will explore a variety of materials and work in 2D and relief and even 3D too! You don't need any prior knowledge or experience as I will take you through every step. The absolute joy of lasering is that you can create quality, precision work from just an idea. The laser cutter does all the hard work for you! And this is why it is such a valuable tool for your students. Whatever their abilities they can produce a piece or product that they are proud of. The level of detail and intricacies that are possible mean complex, involved work can also be achieved for those that really exploit the techniques. The workshop involves learning to - use drawing software (CAD) to create designs - set up and send jobs to the Laser - experiment with different materials and thicknesses that can be lasered - post laser finishes and construction of any multi component pieces / 3D Just a warning ... there are so many possibilities with this process you wont want to stop, its a bit addictive! Workshops are normally run as individual bookings so that, whether it’s just you or a small group that you want to bring with you, I can tailor the workshop to suit your interests and needs. If you would like an open workshop for others to book onto so that you can meet new people, then please let me know and I will keep the date open for others to join if they wish. I make every effort to keep all my listings up to date with availability but feel free to message before you book if you need a specific date or have other questions or requirements.

Where it all began … I first learnt to crochet as a child and spent hours and hours making, sewing, knitting and learning every new technique possible in art, craft and design. After a degree in Graphics and with 16 years experience teaching Textiles, Graphics, Art & Design and Design & Technology I strongly believe in developing my own practice to be the best tutor I can be. I am continually inspired by my students of all ages so it's definitely and 2 way street!
