One day introduction to resin art

X

Description

Join me for this in hands on introduction to creating resin artwork. You will learn the techniques and more importantly the pitfalls of working with epoxy resin for art, as well as how to create your very own abstract, non-representational resin artwork.

You will get my full attention as the classes are limited to 4 people.

During the workshop Resin expert Eunice will show you how to a range of effects with pigmented resin. You will use the full range of mica powders and opaque pigments alongside a wonderful selection of glitters and mineral chippings.

Resin gives you wonderful creative freedom - colour it, make it sparkle and shimmer, embed things in it - the only limit is your imagination! Eunice will show you how to create your very own resin artwork without using expensive or sophisticated equipment, and in this 4 hour workshop you will make a 25 x 30 cm practise piece of wall art and an amazing 60 x 40 cm artwork.

The epoxy resin used is low odour, non-toxic and doesn't contain dangerous solvents. It's easy and fun to use when you know how. You will leave with the knowledge & confidence to create your own work at home.

All materials are provided so just come along and learn a new fun and exciting Art medium.

Eunice will also have products available for you to purchase on the day so you can get started

Your resin art will take 4 to 5 days to fully cure so you can come back to collect if you are local or I will post to you when its ready. Postage will be charged at £10.

Cancellation and a full refund can be obtained up to 4 weeks before the course starts. Start dates may be amended on request.

Amazing course, Eunice was brilliant and we all came away with pictures we were really proud of. We can’t wait to do another course.

Response from Eunice J. Friend:

Thank you Mel, great to meet you and your sisters, I would love to see you back again in the future. Keep going with the resin, you have the magic touch

Had a wonderful time.

I was VERY far outside my comfort zone taking this course and am so glad that I did it. Eunice was very informative and extremely helpful. With the small number of people she was able to spend time with all individuals providing help and advice whenever it was needed.

Seeing all the other students creations was also inspiring as we all had such different ideas on colours and composition.

The bottomless coffee pot with accompanying cakes and biscuits was welcome too :)

Response from Eunice J. Friend:

Thank you so much lynette sometime its good to push those boundaries.

So glad you enjoyed the class

Hope to see you again in the future
Warmest regards

Had a really great day! Have never done this craft before so was a little apprehensive. I needn't have been. Eunice was so nice - friendly, knowledgeable and helpful. I would definitely recommend having a lovely fun messy day, with a couple of paintings to show at the end of it!

Response from Eunice J. Friend:

Thank you Steph, I am so glad you had a fun day

What a fun few hours! I did an acrylic pouring course with Eunice and had a great time. Eunice was welcoming and very helpful. I got extremely messy which was my own fault as I forgot to put any gloves on at one point! As a bonus I have two 'masterpieces', one of which will definitely grace one of my walls. Not only does Eunice teach what you need for the course but she imparts a lot of information to get you stared doing acrylic pouring at home, if that's your intention.

Response from Eunice J. Friend:

Thank you Pat, it was lovely to meet you for messy play lol. I hope you got your hands clean eventually

Warm regards

What a fabulous day! Eunice is so good at everything she does. She explains all the processes clearly and is constantly on hand to help if anyone is struggling. I came out with two pieces that are now on display in my home. I would certainly recommend attending one of these classes.

Response from Eunice J. Friend:

So glad you enjoyed the class. Enjoy your artwork and I can't wait to see what you go on to create

I went as a complete novice and come away with the confidence to try some more on my own, I am not what you would call artistic, so not sure how I will get on without Eunice’s advice on colours, but sure that will come with practice, It was a great experience and learnt so much.
The class of 6 was actually a help, listening to the advice given and the experiences of the other students helped.
If our thinking to try a resin experience I highly recommend Eunice.

Response from Eunice J. Friend:

Thank you Ernie. It was great to meet you and Karen for her 2nd adventure. So glad you have the resin bug. I am sure you will go on to create some great pieces.

Warnest regards Eunice

Had a thoroughly enjoyable day learning how to do resin art. It was a completely new experience for me and now has me completely hooked! I can't wait to try this at home. The group was made up of 6 lovely equally enthusiastic people. And you couldn't ask for a better tutor in Eunice who was very helpful, knowledgeable and an all round lovely person. I can't praise this class enough. Give it a go!

Response from Eunice J. Friend:

Sam it was a pleasure to meet you, I am so glad you enjoyed the workshop and have a new found addiction!!
You took the learnings and added your own spin on your artworks which came out brilliantly well done

Warmest regards Eunice

What a great, informative course and it was so much fun. Thank you Eunice for the introduction to Acrylic Pouring. I can’t wait to dabble at home now and see what I can create. Highly recommend this course for anyone from newbies to those wanting to advanced their skills. Eunice was very knowledgeable and is clearly a very successful artist. Looking for dates to join you at one of your resin classes now. Thanks again.

Eunice's beginner Acrylic Pouring Class was just what I needed to get started. It was a very enjoyable and informative class and well worth the 1hr 40 drive to get there. Highly recommend:)

Thank you!

Had an absorbing time creating something unusual under Eunices personable approach and guiding hand. The time went to quickly. Loved the result of my labours. The course was a 60th birthday present. Who says you can't teach an old dog new tricks!

Response from Eunice J. Friend:

So glad you enjoyed the workshop. I loved that you came with some interesting ideas which turned out brilliantly

Keep creating Phil you have a natural flair

**Challenged myself to do something creative, good for my wellbeing after working from home for 16 months in lock-down! **
The Resin Painting day was certainly something that I had no experience of beforehand, nor for that matter have I done very much in the way of anything artistic for too many years ... but I was determined to be creative and even brought along with me some small items of colour and texture to see if they would inspire me or even if they could end up in my final art work (which they did). Eunice has a great set-up, the studio worked well for the 4 of us and her instruction was clear, easy to follow and also very engaging. It wasn't difficult to get inspired by the techniques and all the colours of the mica pigments that we were able to use. I had fun. I have 2 pictures, bookmarks and coasters to show for my time. I will keep going with this as I want to become more confident with colour and technique. Thank you.

Response from Eunice J. Friend:

Jackie it was pleasure and your embellishments were a perfect addition to your work. Keep enjoying your new Resin adventures

*Sticky but Fabulous*
Not cakes but a Resin Painting day with Eunice!
I had no idea what to expect as I was a complete novice. Before anything listen to the advice to ‘ double glove’. When you get sticky you can remove the top pair and on you go. A little tricky initially but Eunice is the most helpful, able and patient tutor. Explaining every step of the way and ready to jump in and help as soon as needed. I am very pleased with what I achieved and you can can apply the techniques to other areas of your art or just make it a really rewarding one off present and experience for yourself and a friend. When you have finished your artwork, it is left in the studio and posted out to you, ‘when cured’ in just under a week. It’s a shame that I am unable to add pictures but be assured that you will create something unique and stunning. Liz

Response from Eunice J. Friend:

thank you Liz, I am delighted you enjoyed your day of sticky creating. Both your artworks were fabulous. I hope you have them up on your wall. Thank you for taking the time to leave a review. Eunice
