I have to say if you are thinking of doing a resin course, you won’t get much better than this. Norman was a great tutor, calm, relaxed and engaging. I wrote lots of notes but he gave me a step by step guide at the end of the course which was super useful.
It was a one on one session which meant I got all the attention I needed to make sure I fully understood what I needed to do and I have come away super excited to get stuck in. I loved every minute of it and loved the pieces I created whilst I was there.

Although Norman would think I’m barmy saying this, he has a wicked playlist going on in the background as well! Enjoy!

Response from Reson-8:

Thank you very much for your wonderful review, so glad that you enjoyed the course, and so glad that you enjoyed the tunes as I’ve now added to the list.
Very Best Regards

If I could travel back in time, I would do the 3-day workshop all over again. It was a fabulous experience on all levels. Not only did I learn many different techniques and skills, but Norman is also the most generous man when it comes to advice on ideas for things that sell well, what his best selling projects are and what sort of prices he charges. His chilled attitude, combined with excellent teaching skills, made for a professional, but hugely entertaining long weekend.

Response from Reson-8:

Thank you Very much Sue,
Greatly appreciated.
Very Best Regards

Norm was great and I started learning as soon as I got there. When it became clear that I wanted to focus more on one element than he had planned he was more than happy to adapt the course and really helped me hone skills on a number of pieces. I left with not only some great pieces to display in the home but also a great contact to ask for advice and potentially collaborate with in the future. I think if you share a passion for the materials, particularly the wood, then Norm is an expert with a natural teaching talent and a wealth of knowledge. He also has great stories to keep the days interesting!! Will definitely book again once I’ve put these resin skills into practice.

Response from Reson-8:

Many Thanks Martin, very much appreciated and glad that you enjoyed the course. Was a pleasure to work with you and my door is always open to collaboration.
Again, Many Thanks
