Jump into…Skateboard design

Love skating? Join us this October half term to learn how to design and laser cut your own skateboard deck.

DEADLINE EXTENDED – 18TH OCTOBER AT 4PM!!! (see below how to sign up)


If you’re interested in developing your creative skills, illustration or skateboarding and want to create your own unique skateboard, then get involved in Jump into…Skateboard Design this October half term. You’ll learn how to use design software Inkscape at KWMC: The Factory to create your own digital design and etch it into the skateboard deck using a laser cutter. In addition, you’ll create bespoke Grip tape art to add to the top of the Canadian Maple board. The boards are 8″ standards.


The course is ideal for anyone aged 16-21 with an interest in design, illustration or skating. No previous design experience is needed – just a passion for skating.



Wednesday 25th October (12 – 4pm) and Thursday 26th October (12 – 4pm) at KWMC: The Factory. Visit the Factory section to find out more about how to get there.
