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!

Class sizes are always kept small so that participants will enjoy hands on assistance while you learn and create.
COVID19 Safety Plan: The health and safety of all our participants as well as our own team are a key priority especially as we navigate our way out of the recent COVID19 restrictions. We have completed a COVID safety plan and registered with the NSW Government as a COVID safe business. For your assurance, below are the key steps we will be taking to ensure your health & safety:
- All surfaces used in the workshop will be cleaned with disinfectant before and after each workshop.
- All participants will be asked to sanitise their hands on arrival to the studio.
- There will be a maximum of 10 participants in each workshop with social distancing measures in place.
- Participants won't be allowed entry into the studio until the commencement of the workshop - we ask participants to be responsible for maintaining social distance if they are waiting outside of the studio.
- All participants must check into the venue upon arrival using the NSW Services app for contact tracing should the need arise.
- The kitchen area will not be accessible - the studio is a shared space, we can not guarantee the health and safety of our participants or those who work in the space on weekdays if we have an open kitchen. We encourage you to bring your own hot drinks and water with you to the workshop - Sample Coffee is an excellent coffee shop located on Mary Street just a few doors down from the driveway entry (open Saturdays but not Sundays). We will have some small snacks available but can’t guarantee the effects on your waistline.
- We begin each workshop with a demonstration which usually means gathering in close proximity to other participants - we will need to work with each group to manage social distance throughout the demonstration, we are confident this can be managed with everyone’s cooperation.
