Beginners Epoxy Resin Workshop Part Two - Resin Finishing



Join us to learn how to sand and finish epoxy resin to achieve a high quality result. Using your board from Intro 1, you will flatten, sand, polish and cut your board into two coasters. During this course you will use sanders, drum machinery, router tables and chop saws. You will have the opportunity to use Festool power tools and will learn the fundamentals of finishing epoxy resin no matter what you're making.

NB, the course will cover a finish of 320g and will only cover the theory behind gloss finish resin work.

If you want to start making your own resin projects such as river tables, live edge artwork, live edge furniture or epoxy resin coatings, then this is the perfect place to come and learn how to give your work the perfect finish!

An apron, tools and materials will all be provided, but we do recommend you wear old clothes.

Resin Finishing classes will last approximately 4-6 hours

Cancellation and a full refund can be obtained up to 2 weeks before the course starts. Start dates may be amended on request.

Aprons and materials will be provided but please wear old clothes.

Really enjoyed part two! Recommend everyone comes back and does it, so great to see the end result!

Richard was very knowledgeable and good attention to detail, clearly an expert in his field. Thank you!

S Brown - - #37489

Having poured my resin in Part 1, I looked forward to attending Part 2 to complete the process.
I am very happy with my finished coasters. As in the previous class, Richard took the time to to answer the questions I brought from Part 1 and refreshed the points I hadn't quite grasped first time around.
The use of the machinery was not a new experience for me personally being familiar with all that we used, however for a novice user it is an ideal opportunity to get some hands on experience in a controlled environment.
I am looking forward to being able to use the knowledge I have acquired in these 2 courses to add decorative dimensions to my future woodworking projects.
I would recommend these courses to anyone considering working with resin for the first time. Looking forward to undertaking future courses.

I had the privilege of attending part one of this course and as a complete novice, I feel I came away well equipped to have the confidence to go it alone at home. Richard is a great teacher and you can see his passion for the craft. Highly recommend this course for people new to exopy resin.

My husband and I had already done the first ‘resin river place mat’ workshop and enjoyed it so much we were really looking forward to the second part.
We had a really good day and learned so much. I was apprehensive before I started about using the larger machinery but after Richard’s expert demonstration, advice and encouragement I was able to complete my work and even enjoyed myself. I now have new skills!
I was delighted by my finished pieces of art. I was really quite pleased with myself.
We would highly recommend these courses to anyone interested in art and crafts wanting to try something different. Thanks so much, Richard.

We did part 1 and then re-booked for part 2. I attended with my son, we both enjoyed the course and would book something else.

Ike - - #33294

Richard really demystified the whole process and made it so easy for me to create a beautifully finished resin coaster. I didn't know what to expect at first but was so happy that this course is very hands on whilst giving us the relevant information and guidance throughout. I would highly recommend this course for anyone at any level! I really enjoyed it and Richard is a great teacher. I'm looking forward to attend his other courses!!!

Richard is a wonderful teacher, he goes slow and builds up as you get comfortable! I really enjoyed the course he taught on epoxy resin tables.
