Toby reviewed: 3 Day Resin Worktop Course (Custom Worktops)

"This is a great course to introduce you to the fundamentals of working with resin. Norman is a great teacher, very relaxed delivery and tons of experience and practical knowledge. Whatever direction you intend to take with your interest, Norman can shape the course content to suit. I'll definitely be returning for a tune up once I've got my own thing going. Thanks Norm (and thanks for the Chinese tea - delicious!)"

"Had a really wonderful experience on this three day course. Highly recommend to anyone considering any projects using resin. Norman's instruction and explanations are clear as were the demonstrations. Norman has a wealth of experience and money saving tips which he generously shares and there was never a dull moment. Staying in Chester was very convenient and only 15mins away. "

Darrell Hesse reviewed: 3 Day Resin Worktop Course (Custom Worktops)

"I really enjoyed the course and would recommend to anyone who has an interest in learning about resin. Norman was great, he took the time to explain the process and demonstrate it before letting me have a go. That really helped to learn and understand how to do it. The class is no pressure, Norman is easy going and provides a relaxed atmosphere. It's one of the few classes where I learned the process but also the why's around it, not just told what to do. Also appreciated Norman accommodating my food allergy, the lunches were great and prepared fresh. I think I'll have my wife take the course at some point in the future. Thanks!"

Reson-8 responded:

" Many Thanks for your kind review Darrell, very much appreciated, was a pleasure to work with you & Best of luck with your future resin projects. Best Regards Norman"

Karen and Reg Clegg reviewed: Resin art course for beginners

"We had a fantastic day with Norman creating amazing resin art panels. He is a great host and tutor, clearly explaining the plan for the day, going thru the process, providing existing examples as well as demonstrating different techniques and answering all our questions. He was very open, allowing us to try ideas to help create the designs we’d brought along. It exceeded our expectation and the lovely lunch and teas were a very welcome treat. Big thanks to Norman for making it a very special treat for myself and my husband we love the final panels they will take pride of place in our home x"

Angela Simmons reviewed: 3 Day Resin Worktop Course (Custom Worktops)

"I have to say if you are thinking of doing a resin course, you won’t get much better than this. Norman was a great tutor, calm, relaxed and engaging. I wrote lots of notes but he gave me a step by step guide at the end of the course which was super useful. It was a one on one session which meant I got all the attention I needed to make sure I fully understood what I needed to do and I have come away super excited to get stuck in. I loved every minute of it and loved the pieces I created whilst I was there. Although Norman would think I’m barmy saying this, he has a wicked playlist going on in the background as well! Enjoy!"

Reson-8 responded:

" Angela, Thank you very much for your wonderful review, so glad that you enjoyed the course, and so glad that you enjoyed the tunes as I’ve now added to the list. Very Best Regards Norman"

Helen reviewed: Resin art course for beginners

"My daughter and I had a great day from start to finish this is a fabulous way to spend a day so relaxing and finished two pieces of art the hardest part is choosing the colours and then let the resin do the rest can’t wait to see our final creations! Would definitely recommend"

Victoria reviewed: Resin art course for beginners

"I had a great workshop with Norman today, aimed at beginners. This was ideal for me as we started from scratch. After lots of the theory (don’t worry, there are detailed notes given at the end) and plenty of tea and snacks, I got to create two main pieces of art. The process was absorbing and the end result an interesting mix of choice and chance which I am told will continue to change for the next few hours. I am looking forward to the end result. Although times are flexible, Norman‘s usual start time is 10am. I would thoroughly recommend this course."

Reson-8 responded:

" Many Thanks for your review Victoria, was a pleasure to work with you and you will be happy to note that your art pieces did not move too much from the original. Best Regards Norman"

Paula Bonilla reviewed: Resin art course for beginners

"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."

Reson-8 responded:

" Many thanks Paula, Your review is greatly appreciated, was a pleasure to work with you and hope to see you again. Very Best Regards Norman"

Sue Adans reviewed: 3 Day Resin Worktop Course (Custom Worktops)

"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."

Reson-8 responded:

" Thank you Very much Sue, Greatly appreciated. Very Best Regards Norman"

Martin Foulkes reviewed: 3 Day Resin Worktop Course (Custom Worktops)

"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."

Reson-8 responded:

" 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. Again, Many Thanks"

Samera Manzoor reviewed: Resin art course for beginners

"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. Vicki & Angela"

Jill Thomas reviewed: Resin art course for beginners

"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"
