Join Nadine Sharpe as she runs this introductory course on silicon mould making and earring casting.
This interactive workshop is full of learning and hands-on experience.
IN THIS 6 Hour Workshop you will learn
In this workshop students learn how to create a pair of earrings of their own design from scratch.
We will sculpt two pairs of earrings in polymer clay, mould them and then cast them in resin. All in the one day!
The workshop will take students step by step through how to make a piece of resin jewellery from beginning to end. The mould they create will be able to be used again and again to create further pieces at home.
While the mould is curing, students learn the art of resin casting with fast curing resin, using Own Sweet Time's silicone moulds to cast a piece of jewellery, in the colour of their choice. A second casting will then be done in the newly created mould, learning more creative casting techniques, including the possibility of embedding items, this time using slow curing resin.
We will cover hand-sanding techniques, so the pieces will be finished to highest standards.
Who Should Attend?
Any one with an interest in jewellery design or resin casting. All experience levels welcome. This class caters for beginners.
What You'll Get
Each attendee will leave this session with a mould of created pieces + a cast of these pieces plus a cast of an Own Sweet Time piece of jewellery.
Participants will also be provided with a yummy home-made snack and/or fruit platter, and refreshments including water, organic teas and French press coffee.
