EVENT : December 7, 2013 — December 8, 2013.
FREE Christmas decoration design and laser cutting activity
Over the weekend of 7th and 8th December, mekkit.com will be back hosting a fabulous design and laser cutting event in Manchester’s Northern Quarter. Hosted in “Space 2″ at Manchester Craft and Design Centre, we will be giving you the opportunity to use a snowflake generator written by Simon Denvers (www.denvers.com), which you can then have made straight away by the Epilog laser cutter in card for free!
In addition, you will be able to order personalised products with your design on including:
- tree decorations
- ear studs or ear drops
You will also get a lovely mekkit token for a discount on laser cutting and 3D printing at mekkit.com.
Take a picture of your snowflake and tweet it with the hashtag #mekkit, and follow us on twitter (@mekkitcom) any time up to the 12th December, and you will be automatically entered into our Christmas competition with the lovely prizes below.
Prizes will be awarded by 13th December for:
- best snowflake design over the weekend – 15 laser cut snowflakes in your design made in birch ply
- best pic of your snowflake at home or in your office – win a 50cm tall laser cut tree
- best original idea for a new product incorporating snowflakes – we will work with you to make a prototype
- most unusual or inappropriate use of a snowflake – win a free hour of laser cutting
All decisions are final and will be made by an independent panel of judges. Every endeavour will be made to make your prize available as soon as possible after the competition closes. You will be able to collect your prize from Wall of Art, upstairs at the Craft and Design Centre. Good luck!
