Looking forward to meeting some of you tomorrow at the open day.
Decided to join the group as I needed access to woodworking machines as I’m starting to work with wood again. I’d like to incorporate some Kumiko designs into my projects and other small scale wood based projects but lack those tools at home. The option of screen printing looks pretty cool and getting access to a TroTec is just awesome as an opportunity to see what it can do vs. my workhorse of a Glowforge Pro. I’ve also never played with a CNC machine so looking forward to that too.
I’m based in Catford where I run my own makerspace from my home studio, lucky to already have a lot of toys to play with that I brought over from our Kent makerspace when we moved back to London. I recently started a small service business offering 3D printing, Laser cutting and large format vinyl printing - Design, Print and Cut studio.
Other interests: I’m also deep diving into the world of Sublimation onto stretch Polyester and TPU (3D Printing) via Stable diffusion Art (we host the AI on our own computer) and my 16 year old daughters art who attends the Brit school doing graphic design. Her current hyper focused obsession is Lego Monkie Kid characters so been encouraging her to create sticker packs together with Genshin Impact stuff so she can start a small business selling at Anime conventions - She is also great at teaching other kids how to do this stuff as having grown up as part of MozFest (Mozilla Festival) community running her own workshops while I was leading the Youth Zone when it was still hosted in London.
