Put a totally new twist on tiny keepsakes, shiny trinkets and make mini works of modern art by preserving them forever in gorgeously modern hand crafted pieces of resin jewellery.
Over two sessions we’ll teach you how to mix, pour and
cast the resin choosing from our range of mini moulds, giving a new
lease of life to any personal
mementos you bring along. Showcase buttons and pearls, photos and
text, fragments of old letters, maps, flags, scrabble letters – the list
and anything goes!
You’ll make five pieces and you can choose from a pendant necklace, a pair of earrings, brooch, ring, magnet or keyring. Then in the second part of the course, get to grips with basic jewellery making techniques and how to turn your creations into wearable pieces.
This workshop is suitable for complete beginners or for those looking to refresh their skills.
