"Six months ago I have done this course as the 1st step to get some experience in working with epoxy. Richard was very engaging and got everyone excited about learning how to work with epoxy resin. "

"Thoroughly enjoyed this course. The instructor was great and the work was very engaging so much so that the 3 hours flew by! The work was also very doable even with little prior woodworking experience but was also applicable to all levels (additional detail was given for anyone looking to develop their skills further). Would definitely sign up to another course with The River Shop!"

"This course was fun and I enjoyed learning a new skill. Richards explanations and instructions were very clear and detailed which will enable a beginner to start using resin for their own projects. I am really looking forward to seeing how my pour ends up when dry and after this course I decided to book onto the part 2 course to learn how to finish resin and wood projects."

"I really enjoyed this introduction to resin. Richard was a great teacher, we were so pleased with the coasters we produced that we stayed to make a tray. I was given this as a birthday present and would thoroughly recommend to others."

"I thoroughly enjoyed my first resin seascapes class (with coasters and a tray). I found Richard to be an excellent and inspiring teacher who’s friendly and helpful. He’s also knowledgeable, creative, and has a broad range of artistic and technical skills and experience. Richard’s enjoyment of teaching is palpable! I look forward to exploring further courses with him in the future. "

"What a fantastic course! I have been wanting to get started doing this for a long time, but never got round to it. My Partner bought me this course for my birthday and I went last week. Richard is an incredibly knowledgeable and very talented craftsman, who instructs the students clearly, with humour, and to whatever level they are comfortable with. I have the confidence to now try this as a hobby, safe in the knowledge that he is available to help deal with any problems I might encounter. Will be looking to do more courses there in future. Highly recommended."

"I bought this course for my partner for his birthday as he wanted to learn more about resin. We both attended and agreed it was a fantastic introduction to the skill/hobby. Richard was a great teacher and was very patient with everyone, providing input when needed. We would love to continue to learn about resin and will definitely be booking another workshop. Would highly recommend."

"This is a great course, run by a great teacher. Richard explains everything in a way that even a complete begginer can feel confident to make a great bread board. This experience really exceeded my expectations, I would definitely recommend it!"

"This course is a great experience that I would definitely recommend to anyone! Richard is an amazing teacher, even without any experience in woodworking I ended up making a grat bread board that I'm super happy with!"

Peter reviewed: Beginners Woodworking: Make a Bread Board

"Richard runs a very friendly course, we were encouraged to assist each other where needed. The facilities were really good, with a cafe on site for breaks. Those of us with more experience could move at a faster pace or modify the design of the board slightly. I'm very pleased with mine, almost a shame to use it for bread!"

Julian reviewed: Beginners Epoxy Resin Workshop (Afternoon)

"Arrived knowing nothing about Epoxy Resin. Richard shared information with the group in a very patient and friendly way, and we all learnt so much. Starting with setting and creating a sealed frame, and inserting live edged timber, to mixing the epoxy resin to the correct formula, adding colour and pouring it into the frame to create the miniature (very miniature) live edged table. A fab way to spend a Saturday afternoon. Highly recommended."

Daiva reviewed: Epoxy Resin Art Masterclass: Seascapes

"Lovely experience, I really enjoyed. Seascape coasters that I created look nice and other students' work also looked great when we finished. It took me 1hr 40 min to travel to the studio because I live far away but it was worth it and I would do it again. It was great to learn and to see how other students do it, also - learn from our mistakes. I'll be attending other classes in a future."

"Had a great afternoon on the beginners epoxy resin workshop on Saturday 7th May. Richard was great at explaining everything and I gained a lot of knowledge. Can't wait to receive my block. I have even planned my next project and built the mould ready to do a pour. Fabulous course!"

"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."
