It was a lovely workshop space. With a great selection of dried leaves and flowers to choose from, when making our coasters. We also had the opportunity to press some leaves and flowers, beforehand. Richard our tutor, was pleasant and knowledgeable. I feel like I have found something I would like to explore, and I will definitely go back at some point to do more. It was very relaxing and enjoyed this opportunity to be creative. I can't wait to receive my coasters : )

I loved getting exposure to epoxy and learning more about the flower drying process – and doing it the right way! Though watching YouTube videos is helpful, what I enjoyed most about The River Shop class was being hands-on and gaining the practical skills while gaining extra tips and tricks from our very knowledgable teacher. Thank you again!

Great experience. Did the epoxy resin with flower workshop and it was so much fun as well as being informative for any budding artists that want to explore resin. Options to do further items afterwards and lots of flower/leaf options too. Richard was very helpful and the group was a good size. Would definitely recommend and come again.

Richard has been teaching this intro class since 2018 after realising that all the challenges of working with epoxy resin were bound to be frustrating aspiring makers around the world as much as they were for him. After realising that working with epoxy resin was actually quite easy once you knew a few simple tricks and the basic principles, he started inviting you to join him in the workshop to master the tricks of the trade for yourself. Have a look at our reviews on Obby or head over to our instagram to see some of our most recent classes…

A very enjoyable and informal 2 hours, we bought our own pressed flowers from my daughter’s bouquet to make coasters as a memento, other pretty pressed flowers were provided. Can’t wait to receive our finished coasters.

An extremely informative class. I really enjoyed the extra opportunity to pick our own flowers and learn how to press them. The teacher was kind and helpful, he gave us lots of useful tips for future resin making. The work place was also lovely for the class :)

Really nice course. Learnt about flower pressing which I hope to give a go, and about resin. I can't wait to see the coasters I made and I hope return to do another session. The instructor was very knowledgeable and helpful too.

Really enjoyed this class! The teacher was happy to answer all questions and provided a lot of information, the studio was very well organized and clean. There were a lot of flowers to choose from and different coasters mold. Overall a very fun experience for all experience levels
Marie - 20 September 2023
I loved the class! It was a small class with only 3 of us there but that meant that it was extra informative with great chat and explanations. Would highly recommend and would love to come back to do another class soon.
Fern - 16 September 2023
Great class, really pleased with how the resin coasters turned out! Class was a good length and clear explanations for newbies like me
Danielle Kaur-Gandhu - 6 August 2023
Really great class for beginners who are new to using resin. Our teacher Richard was very informative and knowledgeable. Would recommend if you are curious in the art of using resin or looking to do something different for the day.
Lazarus Cardoza - 6 August 2023
The second course I've attended. Excellent teaching delivery (fundamental); great course format ; really good interaction amongst other students. Richard is a great ambassador of good teaching - connects with his class members ; listens to their needs while focusing on the course and students objective. We need teachers like Richard & Dan. Good job guys. Keep up this business for the greater good of our community. I'm really proud of you guys. Lazarus

My husband and I had a great time at the resin flower workshop! I wanted to try something new and I had no experience with resin at all. Donadel was very friendly, knowledgable and helpful, he answered all of our beginner questions! It was a great workshop to start with as a beginner. We’ll be back for the river coaster workshop!
Maria - 14 June 2023
First of all what an amazing experience! This class was my birthday present and I have to say is actually a very nice idea to give as a gift! The teacher ( Dan if I remember correctly) is been very welcoming, has good knowledge and he is been very patience with us in explaining and helping. The venue was quite nice, lot of space and artwork to admire for inspiration. Definitely a 5-star experience for me. Keep up the good job.
Maria Cummings - 12 June 2023
This class was purchased as a Mothers Fay gift, and my mum absolutely loved it. We got to get crafty, learn a new process and make something we could keep. Our tutor and workshop mates were all lovely. All in all, a great time. Many thanks!
Kitti Takacs - 11 June 2023
It was an amazing experience. I can’t wait to go for the next course. I can highly recommend for birthdays, friends and family who want something special. I loved it.
Namitha - 19 May 2023
I really enjoyed this class. Richard, our instructor, clearly knows his subject well and the quality and variety of pressed flowers provided was lovely - both store bought and those pressed by a previous batch. We also got to press our own fresh flowers, that will be used by a future batch, which I thought was a nice touch. It would be great to include a breakdown of the steps and the time allocated for each step, as this was not always clear to me. Since we were a small group on the day, it helped as I was able to ask more questions directly.
Natalie Palmer - 14 May 2023
I thoroughly enjoyed the session and the different aspects involved. The instructions from Richard were clear and well explained. I've never pressed flowers before so was interesting to learn about this too.
Reem Al Gazairy - 14 May 2023
Thank you so much for this lovely class. In my opinion I would like to do the full process (from a-z ) with you to get the full confidant .👏🏻
Josh Bryson - 28 March 2023
Another excellent class! Richard provides a solid, concise introduction to not only flower pressing, but also provides tips for confidently working with epoxy resin to produce great results!
Natasha - 27 March 2023
Spent a lovely morning at the epoxy resin flower masterclass - from picking and pressing the flowers to arranging our designs and pouring the resin, each of the steps was well-explained and easy to follow. The workshop was well-equipped and Richard was friendly and knowledgeable.
Kate Tonizzo - 27 March 2023
I had made some resin pieces before, but never worked with dried flowers. I didn't realise we'd also get to press the flowers (something I'd never tried before). Lots of different dried flowers available to create some lovely coasters - looking forward to receiving the finished pieces soon!
Alessandra Maggiora - 26 March 2023
It was my second resin class at the river shop, and again a wonderful experience! Richard is a super teacher, knowledgeable and professional, but also friendly and fun. You’ll learn everything you need to create your pressed flowers resin coasters, from how to press them and then arrange them in the moulds and pour resin over. Highly recommended!
Diane Jones - 26 March 2023
This is my 3rd class with Richard @the_rivershop- can’t recommend highly enough.
Ed Bateman - 26 March 2023
It was a very enjoyable morning. We chose and cut some flowers to be pressed for the next group and then we got about choosing the flowers for our two coasters. I went for a simple design for each, although I saw quite a few others which were more ornate and they looked amazing. I invited my partner along too, and she had never done it before and really enjoyed it too.
