During the making process we will cover: -Mould making -Mixing epoxy -Pouring epoxy -Mould release -Gluing up -Flattening/sanding -Polishing -Finishing -Adding jewellery fixings The course will be split into two sessions during the day. Session 1 (morning). Will focus on designing and creating amazing art in resin. During this session, you will create 3 different resin pieces. 1 in a mould, 1 with live wood edges and 1 in a light catcher shaped by you e.g. a heart, a star, or a dog paw with resin glass elements in it, so that it catches and shows off the sunlight. You will learn how to build moulds, mix, and pour resin and create unique art that can include wood, dried flowers, colours or objects. Session 2 (afternoon). This is all about how you take the dried resin, cut and sand it into shape, polish it and add the fixings to turn them into jewellery or ornaments. For this element, we will have resin blanks for you to choose from, so that you can learn how to cut, shape, polish and finish resin jewellery that you can take home at the end of the session. By the end of the day, you will have 1 or 2 pieces of jewellery or finished items to take home, and the 3 pours you did in session one. Unfortunately, as resin takes up to 4 days to dry you will be unable to take your creations from session 1 home on the day, but included in your course for FREE we will post them out to you 10 days after your course.

Maker


Scott has been upcycling furniture for many years, but it was only after family and friends asked how they could make the inventive pieces in his home that Scott first started sharing his skills. Over 7 years later Scott continues to host a number of Black Paw upcycling experiences in his workshop, helping people to create their own pieces of upcycled furniture and learn the skills needed to upcycle at home.
