Dried flower & resin jewellery workshop. Wednesday 1st June. Hyde Park Book Club (Leeds)
In this two hour workshop, you will learn how to design and make your very own pairs of earrings using resin and dried flowers. I'll share with you the skills, tips and tricks I've learned and taught myself since starting up Honeysuckle 2 years ago.
All equipment and dried flowers will be provided. Feel free to bring along your own dried blooms for casting - that would be cute!
On the day, you will cast your own earring designs in resin, which will be posted out once hardened at a later date.
The workshop be split into three sections sections:
1. Working with dried flowers - identifying suitable flowers for picking and pressing, which flowers work best cast in resin, how to press and dry flowers effectively.
2. Designing two original pairs of earrings using the dried flowers and moulds available on the day.
3. What is resin and how can it be used? We will cover the correct mixing technique, the different chemical components and mixing ratio, typical problems with resin and how to solve them, and the curing process. We will then cast your two designs using dried flowers and moulds. These will be available to collect once hardened a few days later.
Please select the standard shipping option to cover the cost of postage of your finished earrings.
