During the workshop you will learn techniques to be able to create your very own statement resin jewellery by creating bangles and rings. You will learn how to mix resin; add colour with various techniques, pour and finish your pieces. Your wonderful jewellery pieces will be ready for you to take home on the day.
The workshop will start with a brief explanation and demonstration on what resin is, how it works and how to use it, focusing on various mixing techniques. This will enable you to work quickly and efficiently in pouring your resin into the silicone jewellery moulds supplied. A number of different moulds will be available at the workshop for you to choose from.
Next, you will be able to get hands on with the resin and create your very own pieces. There will be a selection of both opaque and translucent colour pigments on offer as well as glitter and shimmer powder to choose from to create a unique design for your jewellery.
Finally, once the resin is set, you will learn how to sand and finish your jewellery ready for you to take home.
