Learn the basics of Adobe Photoshop to prepare your own artwork or design that we’ll laser cut for you.

Led by an experienced facilitator over Zoom, these fun interactive workshops are a great introduction to the popular Adobe Photoshop software. Choose from 2 different workshops to design your own laser cut stamp or artwork.

In each workshop you’ll be guided through how to prepare your existing image or design using Photoshop. Once you’re happy with your final design, we’ll laser cut or etch it for you at our Darling Square Library makerspace.
