About the Course
Resin is an excellent way to add colour and interest to your home. Our "Adventures in resin art workshop" offers a bespoke opportunity for beginners looking to explore using epoxy resin to create beautiful, abstract statement pieces of art.
At our Cotswold studio we will introduce you to applying epoxy resin to canvas, MDF board and other selected substrates. You will work with our non-toxic, odourless BPA-free 1 to 1 epoxy art resin, learning how to measure, mix and pour resin so that you can continue your resin art adventures at home.
After a short demonstration by our resin experts you will be hands-on with our resin and pigments, learning how to:
-Measure, mix and add colour to your resin, ensuring you don't overpower delicate colours
-Encourage pigment interactions such as lacing and cell formation
-Use a swipe technique
-Create a gorgeous dirty pour using bright pigments and silicone
-Explore opaque, transparent and metallic pigments along with our natural mica powder
-Achieve a perfect finish, removing any bubbles that appear
-Use tips, trade secrets and techniques
-Make use of leftover resin.
Your resin artwork will need to cure overnight and therefore will be posted to you after the workshop. With this in mind, you will be able to visit the Resin8 warehouse where you can view and purchase our vast range of pigments, powders, resins, embellishments, tools and more to take home with you.
You will leave our "Adventures in resin art workshop" with the confidence to create your own resin masterpieces, backed up with the experience, tips and techniques that you will have learnt from our resin experts.
The only thing you need to bring is an apron, and remember to wear clothes that you don't mind getting messy! Resin art is a sticky art form that will soon become your favourite craft.

Perfect balance of instruction and play. Really patient and supportive teacher. (I talk too much). I now feel confident to create my own resin art and the structured teaching approach was just what I needed.
Big thank you Clare.

I thoroughly enjoyed the resin course last Saturday. Clare explained the different processes and techniques clearly. The pace of the course was fine and we all ended up making several items.
