About the Course
Join us for this interactive introduction to the affordable and enjoyable craft of resin jewellery. You will learn how to create your very own colourful bijouterie, with plenty of guidance and encouragement from our resin experts. This class is ideal for resin beginners - we will take you through the basics of working safely with epoxy resin as well as showing you different techniques for adding resin to jewellery.
From playing with colour pigments to adding glitter, photographs and embellishments, resin gives you wonderful creative freedom. Colour it, make it sparkle and shimmer, embed things in it - the only limit is your imagination!
We will show you how to create your very own jewellery without using expensive or sophisticated equipment, and in this 6 hour workshop you will make at least 3 resin filled pendants. These will be posted to you once they've set, and you can add a finishing doming layer (if you wish) at home. You will have the opportunity to buy extra materials and doming resin in our on-site shop.
The 1 to 1 epoxy resin we use is low odour, non-toxic and doesn't contain dangerous solvents. It's easy and fun to use and you can add all sorts of colours, glitters and more to create gorgeous jewellery.
The class will run from 10:00 to 16.30 in our Cotswold studio (Winchcombe, Gloucestershire) and is not suitable for children under 16 years old. Please contact us for full terms and conditions of booking.

I really enjoyed the day, just the right pace, duration and content. It was fascianting to meet others with similar interests but different stories, too.
