Want to bring your letters to life in 3D?? Come learn how to hand letter a design to laser cut! Katie Meek of Meekly Yours will walk you through the process of designing, editing and actually cutting your own hand lettered sign on the laser cutter.
For this workshop, designs will be limited to a maximum size of 6x6”. All materials included. Just bring yourself, an idea of what to letter (a single name or word works best!) and your favorite lettering pen.
This workshop is a perfect way to get acquainted with the laser cutter, but to be able to use the laser cutter on your own during Catylator’s workshop hours, you should enroll in Laser 101.
About the Instructor: Katie Meek is a hand letterer, graphic designer & illustrator, based in Silver Spring, MD. She draws inspiration for her designs from the wonder & organic shapes in nature. Her studio, Meekly Yours, specializes in a variety of paper goods & laser cut wood signs, featuring unique, whimsical designs.
This workshop is a collaboration between Meekly Yours, the Unofficial Hand Lettering Society of Silver Spring and Catylator Makerspace.
Participants will take away their own wooden laser cut lettered sign.
