Epoxy Resin Art Masterclass: Seascapes

X

Description

Join us for an afternoon in our studio to explore the joys of resin art seascapes.

We will go through all the steps needed to make your very own, unique resin seascape. Our coastal artwork class gives you a taste of pouring resin by making a set of coasters. For the more adventurous among you, we have a variety of additional upgrades available for you on the day.

After you've done your coasters, you can turn your newfound skill to pouring seascapes on one of our side tables, serving trays or even your very own wall art piece.

Cancellation and a full refund can be obtained up to 2 weeks before the course starts. Start dates may be amended on request.

What's included in the price?

The course duration is set at 90 minutes. This is ample time for you to arrive, receive a briefing and get your coasters coated in a seascape. We will allocate an additional 90 minutes for anybody that wishes to do another pour on any of our additional products we have in stock on the day. After the class you will be able to buy your very own resin kit to take home and start the next step in your resin journey.

Optional additional products that can be made after the coasters:
Side table - £85
Serving trays: Round - £55, Rectangular - £50.
Additional Coasters - £30
Wall Art - £45

Please note - exact upgrades are dependant on stock available on the day.

The class was very good, informative, relaxed and fun from the beginning. Even though I didn’t know much about Epoxy resin I left the class with so much helpful information. Richard was calm, patient and was explaining every detail very well. I’m looking forward to our next classes. Excellent.

First experience with epoxy resin and I have to say Richard can share his knowledge in a easy to understand terms.

I attended the course due to an obsession with resin - and I'm so glad I did.
Richard really knows his stuff, and had an excellent way of sharing that information, tailoring what he says to people of different abilities.
Someone has left a review saying Richard was 'stand offish'. They must have been at a different course!

Alice Simpson - - #37687

Anyone contemplating doing anything with Epozy Resin needs to do this course. I learnt a huge amount in only 2 and a half hours. My only criticism was that I would have liked a hand out with everything I had learnt on the course. My 56 year old brain can only remember so much. Having said that, just make sure you take a pen and paper to write your own notes. Richard is such a great instructor. He made the course fun and interesting. Highly recommend.

Thank you Richard for a wonderful afternoon learning the basics of resin pouring and measuring. This is the first time I have I have used resin but I feel a lot more confident in tackling my own projects with the knowledge I have gained.

Natasha Eynon - - #37438

Myself and my partner did this course (although we have been asked to post separate reviews). We were seeking to understand the basics of epoxy pouring, and the class was good for that. We learnt a lot about what not to do. The group was very friendly, which was nice, however, I would say that Richard could be a bit standoffish, particularly when certain people were asking questions.

Response from The River Shop:

Hi Natasha,
I’m so sorry to read that the course didn’t meet your expectations, especially if you left feeling you had unanswered questions.
The course is designed to facilitate as positive a learning experience as possible and my aim is to ensure everyone leaves feeling prepared and confident to tackle their own projects. Please feel free to get in touch if you want any support on this subject in the future.
Sincerely
Richard

**posted on behalf of my partner**

My partner bought this course for me for Christmas (however we have been asked to write separate reviews). I felt that it was a good experience to learn the foundations of epoxy, and am pleased with my work. I would like to have heard more about finishing, but that is another course.

Response from The River Shop:

Hi There,
I’m so sorry to read you didn’t have a better experience on the course. We try our best to make sure everyone has the time and space to learn all about the process and enjoy themselves at the same time.
Please get in touch with anything we could have done differently and we will do our best to incorporate your ideas and make the course run better for future students.
Thank you for your feedback.

5 star review!
Thank you so much for such a lovely introduction to Expoxy resin. I had such a great afternoon on the beginners course.

Richard’s knowledge, experience and passion coupled with a desire to help others to develop their skills and craft make this really enjoyable, informative and relaxed.

I loved your workshop and the shop area next next door. Well done for creating such a great space to deliver your courses and to share your experience.

Everyone in the course was so lovely and friendly, it was great to share the workshop with so many nice people.

I would love to attend part 2 to create the coaster.

Thank you again. Your course has exceeded all my expectations. So grateful you could accommodate me.

I would highly recommend this course to everyone.

Kindest regards
Nicola

As a YouTube novice to the world of resin with no practical experience, this was an ideal starting point for me. Richard was an engaging tutor who took the time to answer my own specific questions, as well as those from the other students.
I would recommend this class to anyone wishing to start their journey into resin creativity.
Suggestion - an handout to all students at the end of the class whether hard copy or e-mailed to all class members with pertinent information.

Such a good teacher in Richard. He explained everything very clearly, he engaged with all the course participants in a very friendly and helpful manner, and he inspired confidence in his presentation. We all participated and made our own mini river tables, which have to cure but I am looking forward to seeing what they look like finally, and also anticipating having a go at something at home. There is plenty to learn to be able to make things more accurately, not least colour mixing, but that is all part of the joy.

Joined in the morning session 2/10/2021
I haven’t done anything like this before but I found it fun and informative, Richard is a good teacher. The only thing I found a bit confusing was working out the amount of resin for the amount of area. I think with practice and patience I would be able to work it out. Altogether a great morning. Thanks Richard

Fun afternoon. Pleased with result.. can't wait to see finished set product. My particular class was a little too large to be truly 'fun' and may have benefited from a short tea break before the resin stage to give time for everyone to catch up and digest the process so far. However, had an enjoyable day out. Thanks Richard.

In-person
Tim Allen - - #35136

Overall very good, great fun and I learned a lot, loads of useful tips and advice. I was also very happy with the result. The only criticism I would make is that there were a lot of people on the workshop and it was fairly full on with a lot to cover - a break in the middle for tea and discussion would have been very welcome, rather than at the beginning.

Having tried unsuccessfully to work with wood and resin through video tutorials I decided to attend this face-to-face course for beginners. Definitely the right choice! Richard is a very knowledgeable and friendly "tutor" who clearly has a passion for working with resins. From constructing a mould, sealing wood, calculating resin volumes, mixing resins and even the use of liquid and powder colours, this easy to understand course has it all. Already looking forward to my next course - how to achieve a high quality finish - using the piece I created today. I wish I'd done this a couple of years ago - it would have saved £'s in wasted resin! Thoroughly recommended.

I was a complete beginner to work with epoxy resin and I learned lots of the practical skills, principles and also how to put your own artistic stamp on your work. My class was run by Richard who was very welcoming and interesting. He made me feel at ease so I felt able to ask questions and check when I wasn’t sure.
The workshop is light, airy and was set in an interesting creative hub.
I had a really great morning and certainly want to come back for the second part of the course.

Peter Marsh - - #34624

Richard is an attentive and interesting teacher of this very good course. Basics are explained, and questions are well answered giving in-depth knowledge as needed. Just enough making to be able to practice most of the starter elements. The workshop is a bit stuffy on a hot day, so if it is warm I'd wear light clothes!

Really enjoyed the course with Richard, who was a great tutor. The entire process was well explained, providing a theoretical understanding of how resin works and behaves, and giving us the knowledge we need to be able to successfully create projects at home.
The concept of the class was based around river tables, but the knowledge can be applied to any project involving resin. The workspace was thoughtfully appointed, with everything we needed. It also felt very safe from a Covid perspective.

Ajahnii Lewis - - #34520

As someone who had zero experience working with and using epoxy resin, I took a gamble on this class hoping to learn the basics of a new skill. And I must say I've come away feeling incredibly confident about starting up this new hobby and possibly turning it into a business venture. Richard went above and beyond with his engaging explanations and demonstrations and really did his best to make the afternoon as fun and interesting as possible. I love the fact Richard offered to give us advice in the future if we reach out to him, and I for one will be sure to do so!
I might even be back for a river table class...

As a disabled user I foubd the course teacher Richard very understanding arrange a stool so I could sit during the whole course, he was also well versed in resin problems and how to avoid wasting any extra resin left over, ways to avoid cross over of colours and how to calculate amount of resin needed, also none mathematical methods of working out the amount needed, thus enable person who are not great at maths a easy way of working out what you need, also useful suppliers and ongoing help from a company who supplies resin, he also run the course in a Covid19 friendly environment with space for all to avoid to much contact, I.E. less than on a bus or train.

This course was really excellent. I have just complete the course today 12 June and it really exceeded my expectations. Richard has a great way of getting people to think about the situation and come up with really pertinent questions. The pace was really measured and I was very pleased that it covered in detail the mold construction and sealing plus mold release and how to calculate the volume of resin to prepare. I had already booked on the part 2 of this course and I am very please I have. I can’t wait. I probably could have spent the rest of the day there just asking questions as the whole subject was fascinating. Thank you Richard and I look forward to part 2.

Pam Bailey - - #33292

I attended this course on May 15th. I have been interested in resin craft for a while and thought this would be a good introduction to learn the basics. Richard was very knowledgeable on all aspects of the course.
There was a lot of information to absorb on the day and because the class was quite large I couldn't quite grasp the working out of the measurements (parts of resin to parts of hardener) although Richard did sort it out on his calculator. I wish I had separated the resin in to more cups. I had used two cups but when pouring the two mixtures in to the mould they ended up mixing together so didn't really show separate colours. I did enjoy the course but wish there would have been more tips on how to get the different shades and effects that you see in most resin products.
