FORGOT YOUR DETAILS?

LASER LAB

The Lasers will be running as usual. We expect they may well be even busier than ever, as they take the place of other more hands-on making. Now is the time to develop and fully realise your digital fabrication skills. There are acrylic screens between machines for your safety, and strict limits on numbers in rooms. So you will need to arrive on time, on the hour, as the doors will be locked at other times. Slots now will be 50 minutes to allow time for cleaning between users, and you’ll need to clean keyboards and keypads before and after use with the wipes we provide. But the machines are available and running as always. Do please make good use of them.
