Need to give a gift? Why don't you make one instead! Graphic t-shirts, custom glassware, and laser cut ornaments are just three examples of items you can make at the open studio -- at little to no cost to you.
Our machines include:
-The Mini 18 features Epilog's high performance laser systems, provides a 18" x 12" work area, and is used for high quality engraving and cutting of wood, acrylics, glass (including drinking glasses), textiles and more.
-We have everything you need to get started with the laser cutter, including materials, but you are welcome to bring your own for special projects as well.
-Our sublimation printing process uses a heat press to bring ink and polyblend fabrics together as one. The result is a high quality full color design that is embedded in the fabric or substrate rather than simply laying on top like our heat transfer vinyl process.
-Bring your own polyblend t-shirt or fabric! It also sublimates well on wood.
-We have special sublimation paper that may be used for non-polyblend fabrics as well, which lays on top of the substrate.
-Our Silhouette CAMEO vinyl cutter is great for making graphic t-shirts and decals, among other unique projects. We have vinyl in a large assortment of colors.
-Bring your own t-shirt or other substrate.
-Our sewing machines, cutting tools and supplies are available to use during maker nights.
