Mini Workshop or Make and Take?
From Thursday October 31st until Sunday November 3rd Samantha K will be attending the Creative Crafts Retail Show at the NEC Birmingham.
The fabulous Emma Blake, Sam Kingdon and myself (Denyse Coughlan) will be on the stand waiting to say hello and have a chat with you.
We are trying out something a little different with our Make & Takes/ Workshops too!
On Thursday and Saturday I will be running a 20 minute make and take every half hour (except for lunchtime!) This is to allow people to fit in a shorter session and to have a much better chance of simply joining in as you arrive at the stall. We will be making a star decoration and creating texture with a household product.
On Friday and Sunday we will be running a 45 min – 1 hr mini workshop with the very talented Emma Blake, She will show you how to create a beautiful project, giving tips on layout and colour. These classes can be booked on the stand (H35) on any day of the show.
There will be a charge for both sessions to cover costs etc.
Whether you would like to do a class or not we would love to see you at the show and really look forward to meeting you all!
I posted yesterday on Facebook and since then I have been messaged by a few people asking what i would pick 3D printer wise. So i thought i would share this here and there incase anyone is interested.
These are my opinions only and i would 100% recommend anyone do their own research before purchasing a 3D printer. There are lots of other brands out there, Anycubic and Creality were two other brands i looked at, but for me Elegoo always seem to be slightly ahead or the same specs for less money and they have a great reputation in the industry.
If i couldn’t have got the Saturn, I would have gone for the Mars 2 pro, however the mars 2 is just as good if you want to save some pennies, the main differences between these two, are the pro has a very marginly bigger build area, has air filtration, has aluminum vat and knobs rather than plastic and a few more bits. None affect the quality of the models that come off though as both have the same light source/screen.
I would not go for the Mars (not linked) as the improvements between that and the 2 were quite a jump, including the much better mono screen and its all about the screen with these machines ? (well kinda lol)
I have linked the two mentioned below on Amazon as this is the best price i found, especially as a prime member and today being the last day of prime deals you get a chunk off, in fact with your savings you can get a bottle of resin for the printer and still have change from the normal price
Hope this helps (remember the prime member prices are only whilst prime day is on!)
Mars 2 £200 – £152 if prime member https://amzn.to/3j1IcVp
Mars 2 pro £280 – £224 if prime member https://amzn.to/2STfono
This is the resin i have purchased to start me £34 for 1000ml – £27.20 if prime member https://amzn.to/3j3o8lE
