Make-A-Start: CNC Router Signage Workshop on Saturday 9th March 2019, 10:00 – 15:00 £50.00

Get to know our biggest and noisiest piece of Fab Lab machinery! You will be cutting out your own personalised sign design on our computer controlled router in this one day workshop.

Our first 'CNC Router Your Own Sign' workshop was such a sucsess that we've decided to upgrade it! We are adding it to our Make-A-Start suite of workshops where we talk you through some of the joys and of starting a business.

You must have a certain level of computer litteracy to attend our CNC courses.

Designing your own signage is a fantastic thing to be able to do and the CNC router is one of our most powerful pieces of kit. This beginners workshop will introduce you to these machines' capabilities and show you how to design for its use.

In this workshop we will focus on:

Product design (design software and ideas generation),

How to use a CNC router

What sells well

Where is best to sell

More and more people are enjoying life through starting their own creative businesses. It’s a great community – Join us!


At the end of the workshop you will go home with your own sign. Give it as a gift, use yourself, or just keep as a beautiful piece of art!

Following this session you will go away with:

Your very own CNC cut sign

A basic understanding of how to use a CNC machine

A basic knowledge of designing for CNC machines

Key bits of information we think are important when starting a new business
