  Resin 

Presently no sessions held. Due to Auckland - Covid.

 

 

Thank you for finding my site and wishing to learn/view more on the workshops I provide with the amazing medium of resin.   I must add a word of caution to all -  be prepared to fall in love, as  resin is very addictive. 
About myself - Jennifer Cruden Being a full-time artist, painting with both oils and resin.  Having taught oil painting classes for many years and with resin for over four years, loving passing on information learned over the years to all who attend workshops. 

Take note... I am still receiving phone calls/emails asking dates, times, price, etc. Everything you wish to know on resin workshops is shown on this page. Please read through. If a future date is not shown, sign up for newsletter and you will be updated. 

Many of those who have attended are now producing their own resin art in either paintings, or homeware, and are attending markets etc selling the items they are producing. 

 

 

Attendees - As soon as a newsletter or notification is sent out, these resin workshops become full 'very' quickly due to my only accepting a few for each workshop, thereby enabling personal attention to all.   Therefore would suggest you book as soon as able.   

Resin Food Safety - Manufacturered by Elichem Resins in the UK.  "Elichem resin conforms to ASTM D-4236 standards - where it is suitable to use as a food-safe coating."   However, as is the case with all resins,  not to be used as a cutting or food preparation item. 

Cancellation - Kindly read the cancellation policy found below.   People are wait-listed in some sessions and, if a person does not turn up, then others are missing out.   Therefore not fair to thosewho wish to attend.
Thank you for your understanding in this.

Details of resin workshops

This is for those who wish to learn the ins and outs of resin in order to continue their adventure in resin at home.  All you will need to know is explained in this one day session ie mixing, colours, various tools, substrates available, techniques plus safety. You will be confident to continue using resin. 

If you do not wish to learn the intricacies and ins and outs fully of resin, and would just like to take a session to 'have a go' and to complete an item, then these resin workshops may just be for you (these do not provide the amount of information as provided in the 'full introductory' session.)  All colours (pastes, powders, metallics) and glitters will be available for you.  

Supplied gloves, apron and mask (not a light cloth one) must be worn when undertaking resin, especially if dealing with very fine powders/micas or if heating resin.  If unable to wear mask provided, then you will be unable to attend.  No refund will be given if not wishing to wear on the day.  Note: you may bring your own mask so long as it is one for fine dust and prevention of smells, ie an N95 is ideal. 

Resin takes a minimum of 24 to 48 hours to cure (dependant upon resin used).   Collection of article is the next day or by arrangement.  Resin is a type of plastic please be careful as may be prone to scratches - hardens over several weeks.

Pigments/Powders/Pastes /Resin and glitters are able to be supplied for purchase - these are imported directly from highly respected resin and pigment manufacturers overseas. A discount will be provided to be used either on the day or at a future date. Now one of the main suppliers in NZ of these - see shop page for more details. 


Important -

As mentioned, the resin we use is a quality resin for art and a lot safer than others on the market, however,
as all resin has a chemical structure and as we will be mixing in paint/pigments and using heat, it therefore ... 
>>> is not advised for women who are pregnant or those who may suffer from asthma or have other allergies to items. 
>>> All attendees do need to be 16 years and over.

  • Although not undertaken by many,  I do pre-coat some of the items we will be using.  As I do this for my own professional work  I wish to provide a better service to all attendees by spending that little bit of extra time to undertake this for those who attend.
