About the Course
Join us for this interactive introduction to creating resin artwork. You will learn the basics of working with epoxy resin for art, as well as how to create your very own abstract, non-representational resin artwork and how to clear coat existing paintings.
During the workshop you will make resin paintings on both canvas and board. Resin expert Clare will show you how to do a 'dirty pour' and a 'swipe technique' with pigmented resin. You will use the full range of transparent and opaque pigments alongside the wonderful selection of colour powders and glitters. We will be asking you to choose the colours you would like to work with, before you come, so get your thinking caps on!
Resin gives you wonderful creative freedom - colour it, make it sparkle and shimmer, embed things in it - the only limit is your imagination! Clare will show you how to create your very own resin artwork without using expensive or sophisticated equipment, and in this 6 hour workshop you will make at least 3 masterpieces..
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 creative pieces of art for the home.

Perfect balance of instruction and play. Really patient and supportive teacher. (I talk too much). I now feel confident to create my own resin art and the structured teaching approach was just what I needed.
Big thank you Clare.

I thoroughly enjoyed the resin course last Saturday. Clare explained the different processes and techniques clearly. The pace of the course was fine and we all ended up making several items.
