Chocolate
Love and Lasers

It's always more fun with a group of friends. Share this with them!
Description

In this love-themed laser class, we'll be etching custom designs onto bars of chocolate! Participants will have the opportunity to etch a design of their choosing onto a bar of Theo chocolate, wrap the cleverly designed treat in a crafty customized laser cut box, and accompany their temporal art with a bit of handmade fanmail too!

We'll have all kinds of glitter, glue, embroidery floss, colored pencils and miniature hearts on hand for the occasion. Men, women, singles, couples and kiddos are all encouraged to make something special for a loved one -- whether that loved one is Ryan Gosling, yourself or someone equally worthy.

All you'll need to bring is your creativity, sense of humor, and inclination to play with your food!

we're excited too! good question, rachel. you are welcome to bring a file with you, but there will also be time to set up a file during class as well. if you bring a file, you'll want to make sure it's strictly black and white with no shades of grey. if the file has text with a specific font to which you feel very attached, do outline the text so that there are no font conversion issues. looking forward to seeing you this thursday!

Hi Kristen & Eve,

Really looking forward to this! Should we come prepared with our own design or will you have them there to choose from? Thanks!

Hi Leslie! No problem if you'd like to bring your own chocolate. Please keep in mind the dimensions should be 2 1/4" x 5 1/2". See you then!

I do not eat Hershey's chocolate, as it is probably one of the very worst out there. I will either make my own or bring some other bars. Thanks! Very excited to have this opportunity to inscribe a love note on some heavenly chocolate.
