We acknowledge Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples and their continuing connection to land and as custodians of stories for millennia. We respectfully acknowledge the land on which we all meet today, and pay our respects to elders past, present and emerging.
In this workshops we will be learning how to use Adobe Illustrator to design acrylic earrings to be cut on the Edge's laser cutter.
We will start with an introduction to the basics of Adobe Illustrator to skill you up with designing for the laser. Once you have a basic understanding on how to create files and designs, we will let you come up with some earring designs and get cracking with the laser cutting!
We will have a range of findings available for you to put together your earring designs.
- Raster vs Vector
- Create a new file
- Navigate the Workspace
- Basic Tools (Selection Tool, Zoom Tool, Shape Tools, Text)
- Expanding Text and Shapes
- The Direct Selection Tool

- Earring design and basic jewelry terminology
- Working with small hand tools to create jewelry.
