Resin Jewellery & Mould Making WorkshopMade By Me Workshop
Create your own wearable works of art from a mould that you will make yourself!
In this specifically tailored one of a kind workshop we will start by teaching you how to make your own silicon jewellery mould and then we will take you through the steps to create your own resin cast jewellery pieces!
You will start the workshop by selecting your shapes, we have a huge range of shapes that you can mix and match to suit your own style and tastes. Once your shapes are selected we will teach you how to successfully set up your mould, how to properly mix your silicon and then create your mould. While your mould sets, we will take you through the steps to mix, colour and cast your resin. We will finish the day by removing your mould from its frame and then cast your resin! Your mould is yours to keep, assuming you take care of it you can use it cast many more jewellery pieces at home - presents sorted for the foreseeable future!
