Rubber Stamp Workshop on Thursday, 21 February

Rubber Stamp

Learn how to turn your image into a laser-cut rubber stamp in this informative workshop, run by Dr. Matt Little, on Thursday, 21 February, from 7pm – 9pm.

Bold, single-colour images work best for rubber stamps, giving you a quick way to mark cards, labels, books, fabric, and more!

For £5, you will receive materials to make one stamp, including stamp pad, laser-ready rubber, and wood to create a handle. Materials to make larger stamps will also be available for purchase.

There are limited spaces available for this workshop, so please contact Matt at matt@re-innovation.co.uk to book your place.

For more information on the process, see our Wiki page on Laser Stamps. And if you have any questions, talk to Matt at matt@re-innovation.co.uk.

Scissors!

I finally got around to hacking all of the laser parts off the laser scissors we used for Tea & Lasers at GameCity last year. Having a bandsaw makes it a lot easier, and we now have a lot of spare pairs of scissors.

A part of this was also testing the red laser diodes that came out of them. We now have a set of very bright ones ready to go into the next version, and will be building it over the next few months. There are a lot of ways we could improve on the last iteration, one being sensors and beams that are easier to position. I’ll make sure to put what we build up on instructables.

In the meantime, anyone want any scissors?
