You will begin by learning about resin and how to create different pieces by putting various materials (beads, buttons, paper, glitter, etc.) into the resin moulds. Materials are provide but to make personalised items you are invited to bring along any materials you’d like to use in the sessions, this can include small keepsakes (e.g. shells), papers (e.g. tickets, lyrics, small photos), beads, sweets etc.
During the second session we will remove the dried resin pieces from their moulds and finish the jewellery to a high quality, including sanding, adding findings and varnishing pieces.
We will then learn up to 5 different beading techniques. You will use beads and headpins. You will learn how to neatly create loops for dangly earrings. Necklace techniques include knots and crimps for stylish spaced necklace results. You will learn to use memory wire to fashion a matching bangle.
Each participant will make around 5 pieces of resin and five beaded items so you will have approximatly ten finished items to take home. Our experienced expert tutor Gemma will guide you through making your creations. All materials are included including gold and silver plated findings and beads. Handouts will be provided to remind of you the techniques once you get home. You will also receive chiffon gift bags to present your creations in!
