INTRODUCTION TO RESIN
This lesson will teach the participants the basics of working with resin. The project will be a set of 4 tile coasters.
The information covered will include;
BASICS: What is resin? How does resin work? What is resin most commonly used for, and where do we encounter resin in daily life? Different types of resin.
SAFETY: Potential hazards of working with resin. Basic safety precautions. CONDITIONS AND PRACTICES REQUIRED FOR WORKING WITH RESIN Environment (Temperature & Ventilation), Weighing/measuring.

Additives (Pigments, paints, glitter, inks, micas, stones etc.)Technique (Different ways of applying resin, and manipulating it to achieve different effects) The curing process.
ADDITIONAL CONTENT:Other projects for which resin can be used. (Molds, cups, paintings etc.)Sanding resin. Tips and tricks for working with resin.
How participants should prepare:
Wear only clothing and footwear that you do not care about.
Do not wear open toed shoes.
Keep hair tied back.
Note* As resin takes time to cure, the participants will not be able to take their projects home on the same day. We will have to store them overnight, at which time they will be able to be handled. A full cure requires 72 hours. I will come back the next day (most likely the day after) and remove the protective tape backing, and put the cork on the back of their projects for them. They should be able to pick them up on the Monday following the event. On the evening of the lesson, I will bring a tile with me, that is cured, and show the process of cleaning the back, so they know how to finish the project.
