Resin Art Workshop

X

Description

Step away from your digital distractions and enter the magical, mindful world of resin. In this class at my studio you will create your very own resin art homeware while looking out across the hills of Todmorden, West Yorkshire.

During the workshop I will lead you through the utterly absorbing process of mixing, pigmenting and pouring resin. You'll get everything you need to make a placemat and coaster set plus a mini pot. It's the perfect introduction to using resin to create unique art for your home.

Making resin art is a relaxing, uplifting creative activity with fantastic results even for beginners. It can also be a little intimidating to start as there are so many different materials, types of resin...and quite a bit of mess! Which is why I am here to give you the benefit of my years of experience and free reign to experiment :)

Location:
The workshop is hosted at my home studio, off Stansfield Hall Road, Todmorden OL14 - full address to be provided after booking
The house is a 15 min walk from Todmorden train station (though the hill can be steep)

Postage of work:
- Please note you will not take your work home on the day as resin is liquid when you pour it and it takes several days to 'cure' fully.
- Your ticket price includes postage of your items to you after the workshop
- Artworks will be ready to send out from the Friday after the class to ensure they aren't damaged in transit

Refunds are not available on this booking. Start dates may be amended on request.

What's included in the price?

- Materials and guidance to create one placemat and coaster set plus a mini pot using silicone moulds.
- More silicone moulds will be available to play with (there's always leftovers!)
- Introduction to the preparation of resin and pigmenting
- Every colour imaginable, including iridescent, metallic and glitter pigments, will be at your disposal.
- Aprons and gloves will be provided but please dress for mess from top to toe.
- It’s a relaxed format so I’m happy to answer anything and everything you want to know about resin
- Refreshments provided - tea / coffee
- A thoroughly relaxing Saturday afternoon in beautiful surroundings

Really enjoyed the afternoon having fun with resin. Sophie was very flexible in terms of doing slightly different things than on the workshop plan and even let us do extra since we had time! Lots of useful hints and tips.

Response from Unusual Girl Art:

Thank you for your kind words and I'm so pleased you enjoyed the session! It was a pleasure to have you along and I hope you continue to have fun in your adventures in resin.

Sophie is a knowledgeable and engaging instructor and the small group size meant Sophie was easily available when we had queries. We were shown a wide range of techniques and materials and encouraged to make more items than first planned when we'd completed our first pourings. We really enjoyed the workshop and made some great pieces which we look forward to receiving once fully cured. We've been inspired by Sophie to look at using resin pouring elsewhere in our homes and hope a longer workshop will be available on this at some point.

Response from Unusual Girl Art:

Thank you so much for your review, it was such a pleasure to have you all along for the workshop. I'm delighted you had such an enjoyable time and are keen for more resin adventures! Looking forward to reuniting you with your wonderful creations :)
