Hope Yoder’s Laser Retreat 2.0 – January 23-26, 2023

This is ALL NEW 2.0 Hands-On Laser Retreat.

Go beyond the basics and Laer OUTSIDE the lines, go BEYOND the box. If you have been to Hope Yoder’s 1.0 retreat in 2022 or are comfortable using your laser, this is the retreat you have been waiting for. 

ATTENTION: If you are new to lasers, haven’t received your laser yet, or want to order a laser, you will want to join one of Hope Yoder’s 1.0 Laser Retreat (instead of the 2.0 listed on this page) found HERE.

January 23-26, 2023

The retreat is complete with finished projects designed to guide you through new fun laser techniques and crafty applications, all in a small hands-on, in-person group setting. We will be working with MIRA lasers from AEON, and Lightburn Software. If you own a laser that uses Lightburn and your laser has a Rudia controller, you will fit right in, regardless of your laser brand.

Each student will receive three lunches, kits, a color workbook, a USB with videos and files, snacks, prizes, and an Art & Charcuterie Party!

Optional: Book a private coaching session with Hope Yoder on Monday before the party starts or on Friday after the retreat ends. Ask for details before booking your flight and hotel. 

This is the perfect hands-on PARTY for anyone who;

  1. Owns and operates a laser
  2. Wants to get “crafty” with it
  3. Wants to have FUN with their laser, whether it’s a hobby or a business
  4. Deserves to get away and treat themselves to a fun-filled week of laser shenanigans while learning to go to the next level

Kick off the retreat with an evening Art & Charcuterie Party. Work with cutting boards, glass, epoxy, denim, QR codes, acrylic, leatherette, wood, and fabric.


  1. A Laptop with the latest version of Lightburn software
  2. Apron
  3. Gloves
  4. Option: Ipad with Procreate/Apple Pencil (don’t worry if you don’t have an iPad, there will be a workaround for this lesson
  5. More details will be sent via email 3 weeks prior to the retreat date.
