WORKSHOP / SUNDAY 3 NOVEMBER / 10:30 – 4PM
The creation of resin and timber together is all on trend and is a lovely mix of old and new feel. This workshop will provide you with the knowledge to create your own pieces combining resin and timber. It is a great starting point to creating resin river tables and art works.
This class is suited for beginners to intermediates looking to pick up some more knowledge around the techniques used. We will take you through all of the steps required from the beginning to the end to create your very own timber and resin pieces. The class is a mix of discussion, practical demonstration and a much hands on experience as possible.
Art Mania Studio is proud to have this renowned artist and co-owner of Art Tree Creations from Melbourne to Newcastle to give us first hand knowledge of this process. Scott Thomson has over 18 years experience and industry training with fine finishes including epoxy resin, paint additives and mediums. Our talented artist instructors will help you create your own pieces and you will learn all aspects including:
- What is resin and safety required using it
- Discuss the resins on the market and which are best suited
- Explore the mixing of different pigments and colours
- Timber preparation required for achieving the best finish
- How to get the best results from your resin and troubleshooting

Join this fun filled 5.5 hour workshop, create your very own resin and timber piece. This workshop will give you the knowledge to create your very own timber and resin creations.
You will create a timber and resin river creation. Project sizes will vary as the timber slabs are never the same. The project photos provided to date, are of a timber and resin serving board, however in this workshop, you will work with live edges facing in toward the middle with the gap between filled with resin. The knowledge obtained can be applied to any timber and resin project, up to much larger creations. The classes come with ongoing support that is just a phone call or an email away.
You will gain the knowledge and know how to finish off your pieces created in the class at home. As the resin takes time to dry, you will need to organise a time after 48 hours to collect your project to then apply the finishing touches to complete. Book yourself into one of our workshops today.
