Resin Workshop

Course Overview

The popularity of Resin Art is growing and growing! Safe and easy to use, it is a wonderfully creative medium that anyone can use to get amazing results every time. Resin can be used to enhance and decorate many different surfaces and items such as art canvases, cheese boards, coasters, trays and furniture. It can also be cast into unique pieces of jewellery.

In this workshop you will be introduced to the basic techniques of using resin, resin mixing and colouring and different resin pouring techniques. You will get to explore some of the many ways resin can be used to produce gorgeous, glossy, flowing designs. The thick, shiny surface and transparent colours are very attractive and each piece is unique.

It is a bit messy but a lot of fun! You will come away with 3 of your very own one-of-a-kind pieces of resin artwork on different surfaces – a canvas, a cheese board and a piece of jewellery.

Macquarie Community College operates from a range of venues across Northern and Western Sydney. We have campuses in Blacktown, Carlingford, Chatswood, Epping, Mt Druitt, Richmond, and Ryde. Enrol now!
