Absolutely worth every penny just for the tips that you pick up and great company as well, brilliant, booking another course straight away.
Response from Reson-8:Many Thanks Cathy for your kind review, very much appreciated.
An excellent time. Explanation was very good and it was good to have a go. Looking forward to receiving my artwork when it's dried. The brain started ticking with ideas
Response from Reson-8:Hi Janice,
I attended Normans course beginning of March. Norman is a great character with lots of stories to tell. He was very welcoming and full of knowledge. There were things I didn't realise when working with resin but came away with all my questions answered. Norman went though all stages step by step at a pace that I could follow being a beginner. I learnt about health and safety, preparation which is key to your end results, about weighing, ratios and so much more. Norman was a great trainer and would highly recommend this course to anyone I learnt so much, big thanks to Norman. Hopefully will be doing the 3 day course with him in the near future.
Response from Reson-8:Many thanks Paula,
If I could travel back in time, I would do the 3-day workshop all over again. It was a fabulous experience on all levels. Not only did I learn many different techniques and skills, but Norman is also the most generous man when it comes to advice on ideas for things that sell well, what his best selling projects are and what sort of prices he charges. His chilled attitude, combined with excellent teaching skills, made for a professional, but hugely entertaining long weekend.
Response from Reson-8:Thank you Very much Sue,
Norm was great and I started learning as soon as I got there. When it became clear that I wanted to focus more on one element than he had planned he was more than happy to adapt the course and really helped me hone skills on a number of pieces. I left with not only some great pieces to display in the home but also a great contact to ask for advice and potentially collaborate with in the future. I think if you share a passion for the materials, particularly the wood, then Norm is an expert with a natural teaching talent and a wealth of knowledge. He also has great stories to keep the days interesting!! Will definitely book again once I’ve put these resin skills into practice.
Response from Reson-8:Many Thanks Martin, very much appreciated and glad that you enjoyed the course. Was a pleasure to work with you and my door is always open to collaboration.
Good communication, excellent packaging for delivering my “try at home” craft kit. I haven’t started it yet but have the promise of asking Norman if I need any help. Highly recommended
Response from Reson-8:Thank you Margaret,
The perfect course for resin art beginners. Highly recommend Norman, he was friendly, welcoming and very informative throughout the class.
I learnt all about health and safety when using resin, how to prepare, mix and explore with resin art.
Norman created some stunning coasters, and went through the stages step by step so that I understood. I then used moulds of my choice to explore with resin. The class was very person centred to my interests and I felt comfortable asking any questions.
Fun experience learning from someone so skilled and passionate about art, thank you :)
we attended the course as absolute beginners, was made to feel very welcome and at ease, found the whole experience very interesting, informative, we learned a lot about resin and even created 2 pics. The course has left us wanting to develope further and lots of ideas to try.
Our trainer was brilliant with us and explained things clearly and provided excellent support during our practical part of preparation and designing our pictures, also answered lots and lots of questions we had. Thank you so much.
Thank you very much and we will be booking again.

Response from Reson-8:Hi Vicki & Angela,
A fantastic course
I attended, an absolute novice and left feeling like an artist. I’m so excited about creating pieces and finishing them in epoxy resin.
Norman’s relaxed style, knowledge and demonstration of the subject matter fills you with confidence and makes you feel like bulk buying materials, renting a studio and locking yourself away for a month.
I would highly recommend this course
