About the Course
We have two of these courses running in 2020, one on a Monday afternoon and one on a Friday evening, both run for 6 sessions over 6 weeks.
Discover the wonderful and messy art of Resin on this six week course. Each week will feature a different technique to master this popular craft.
On the first session you will receive a your own resin makers ‘kit’ to use over the next 6 weeks and then take away with you at the end of the course. This will include a set of silicon molds, a rubber protective mat, measuring cups and stirrers, sandpaper, polishing cloths and your own bottle of epoxy resin and hardener.
We will discuss the properties of resin and why we choose to use epoxy. We will learn how to measure and pour resin, plus how to colour it. Our aim in this session is to pour at least three pendants, a brooch and two pairs of earrings. We will be leaving these to cure over the next week ready for session 2.
In session two we will be demolding our resin from session one. We will learn how to sand, polish and finish our resin pieces and turn them into wearable works of art.
We will then design and pour a chunky resin bangle with inclusions (items embedded in resin) to finish in session three.
In session three we will be polishing and finishing our chunky bangle. We will then be working with a two part silicon to make our very own resin molds to use in session four.
In session four we will be using our molds from session three to make our own unique pieces. We will also be using specialist jewellery findings that are backless, to test our new resin pouring skills.
In session five we will be finishing our pieces from the previous week. We will also be using a very fun UV resin that cures in 5-10 minutes under a specialist lamp.
On our final session we will using larger amounts of resin to create either a canvas picture or a set of matching coasters. This method is similar to acrylic pour painting and is very messy but also extremely good fun.
After completing this detailed 6 week course you will be well on your way to becoming a confident resin artist.
This course is suitable for complete beginners or those who would like to progress their skills learnt on our 2 hour Beginners Resin workshop.
