Check out the Crafternoon Flyer created by Sierra College Graphic Design student maker Lindsay Scott.

Dates: Fridays 4-6 pm

2/08: Wood Jewelry – Earrings

2/22: Water Bottles – Etched

3/08: Alcohol Tiles or Trivets

3/22: T-shirts/Totes – Vinyl

Location: Hacker Lab powered by Sierra College, 4415 Granite Dr. #200, Rocklin

Wood Jewelry – 2/08/19: Come see how a laser cutter works to cut and etch some wooden earrings!  Then you can add personal touches with paint or stain before you put on the earring hardware.

These would make a perfect Valentine’s gift for a loved one or a beautiful pair of earrings you can wear yourself.  We will have templates for earring designs that can be sized to your specifications.  If you have a black and white image or outline you would like to use, please bring it on a flash drive and we will do our best to help you put it on an earring design, but this process takes a little longer than cutting/etching an already designed template.

Etched Water Bottles  – 2/22/19: Come see how a laser cutter works to etch water bottles! Each ticket reserves a spot to come see how it is done. If you would like to customize a bottle with your name, bottles can be purchased at the event for $10 each (quantities & colors are limited and first come first serve). Be aware that each bottle takes roughly 10-15 min to completely etch after your design is ready. If you have a specific design or saying you love, please type it out or find a silhouette (black & white) type image online BEFORE you come and have it saved on a flash drive to help save time!

Coasters and Trivets- with alcohol painted tiles – 3/8/19: Come learn one of the hottest trends in the art scene right now as we make some beautiful tile painted in Alcohol ink! Guests can make EITHER 1 Trivet or 4 small coasters

Vinyl – T-shirt or Tote – 3/22/19: Tshirt or Tote (bring your own OR purchase one for $5 at the event) Today we will be learning how to make t-shirt transfers on the Vinyl cutter! We will also be playing with the Heat press to make our own t-shirt or tote designs!
* Please bring your own T-shirt or canvas bag for Vinyl heat transfers, or purchase one of the ones we will have on hand for $5 ea at the event. Vinyl for designs will be provided. If you have a specific design or saying you love, please type it out or find a silhouette type image online BEFORE you come and have it saved on a flash drive to help save time!
