Hoops & Hair Clips - Contemporary Jewellery Casting

Learn how to mix, add colour and create designs with non-toxic epoxy resin


Join us in person at our custom-built workshop in the heart of the Cotswolds and discover sensational transformations and secret techniques.

Seen striking botanical hooped earring and gorgeous statement hairclips in every fashion magazine and fancy creating your own? This is the workshop for you! Join our Hoops and Hairclips - Contemporary Jewellery Casting Workshop and spend a playful morning or afternoon mixing resin, swiping colour and encasing flowers to create bespoke, wow-factor accessories. Perfect for beginners!

PLEASE NOTE Due to the curing time of resin, you'll be able to put all you have learnt on the workshop into adding a finishing layer of resin and findings to your pieces at home. You'll leave with an exclusive goodie bag with the resin and findings you need to complete your wearable works of art after the workshop.

You will learn how to:

- Make gorgeous statement accessories using Resin8 non-toxic resin 
- Encase beautiful dried flowers and embellishments to create gorgeous pieces of jewellery
- Design statement hairclips by working with Resin8 pigments in several cutting edge, mould-painting techniques
- Measure, mix and add colour to your resin
- Explore using our full range of resin pigments along with our natural, ethically sourced mica powder
- Manipulate resin to create different visual effects
- Add embellishments to your work such as our eco-glitter and sparkles
- Achieve a perfect finish, removing any bubbles that appear
- Chat through finishing techniques and ways to add findings to your pieces at home after the workshop
- Use tips, trade secrets and techniques

Our morning workshops begin at 9.30am and finish around 12-12.30pm. Our afternoon workshops begin at 1.30pm and finish around 4-4.30pm.
