About The River Shop

Richard has been teaching this intro class since 2018 after realising that all the challenges of working with epoxy resin were bound to be frustrating aspiring makers around the world as much as they were for him. After realising that working with epoxy resin was actually quite easy once you knew a few simple tricks and the basic principles, he started inviting you to join him in the workshop to master the tricks of the trade for yourself.

Richard was a great instructor and took time to explain the process and any additional questions people may have had. The class was very relaxed, informative, and enjoyable. You never felt rushed and the time flew by. Everyone left with a smile on their face! Fully recommended.

We loved this course with Richard. He was very helpful and friendly and had lots of knowledge to share with us. We thoroughly enjoyed it, it was great fun! We will definitely be returning with the new classes and would recommend to anyone who wishes to learn about resin.

Amazing beginners‘ workshop with an excellent, patient, and extremely helpful teacher, Richard. I loved it and I'd like to take more courses after the opening of the new studio, maybe around furniture building (I would loved to create a river coffee table)!

First time using epoxy and I was very happy that Richard took his time to explain the different epoxy on the market.
The environment was friendly and relaxed .... everyone seemed happy 😃.
So overall a very good thumbs up from me ..
Just wondering when will I get my epoxy project from the post ? Has it been sent ? Many thanks
