Resin Jewellery Workshop
In this specifically tailored one of a kind workshop we will be teaching you how to craft your own resin earrings. You will be working with silicon mould designed and crafted especially for our workshops, these moulds have multiple components which will allow you to make upward of 6 pairs of earrings (this really depends on how you chose to use your components) you should have enough to decorate your lobes with spares to gift to lucky family & friends! Some of the components could also be used to create pendants or whatever else your imagination can conjure up!
You will be working with 2 types of resin, a fast setting and slow setting, and teaching you the differences and benefits of working with each. We will start the workshop using the fast setting resin so that you can get a feeling for working with the moulds and colours. We will finish the workshop using the slow setting resin which will allow you to achieve different effects and finishes. We will also go over how to sand & finish your pieces so that you can complete these steps at home .
At the end of this workshop you should understand the basic principles of working with resin and silicon moulds so that you can continue to create your own jewellery at home.
