The Fab Lab has a range of machinery chosen to utilise digital design to enable low-cost manufacturing and prototyping. Our machinery embraces

and technology works, and how it will be best suited to your businesses needs.
Tutor: Hannah Reid will provide a practical hands on workshop, along side the Fab Lab team.
This workshop offers an introduction to all the machinery at Fab Lab Cockermouth. You will be able to design or personalise promotional
materials and objects. By having a range of fabrication machinery it means that you will be able to create anything from, original business
cards to a point of display stand.
By undertaking in the design process you will be able to experiment with different materials, different types of products in different sizes, so
that you are able to produce promotional materials which are suited to your businesses.
Topics that will be covered:
- Introduction to how a laser cutter, ‘CNC Shopbot’ Router, 3D Printer and Vinyl Cutter works,

- How to use CAD within your design work.
This course is for you if:

- You are from a business wanting to make their own promotional products
- You have an idea for a small manufacturing business (or want to shake up one you already run)
- You work in an industry which requires rapid prototyping for making
