4 hour workshop
Spend the day at Friendly Forces Construction's studio in Woolwich, where you'll be working with wood and epoxy resin to create a colourful serving board or wall art. Epoxy Resin is completely waterproof and comes as a clear liquid that can be dyed and used as an adhesive, coating or a design feature. It works well on metals, wood, plastics and other materials.
In the workshop, you will learn the properties and durability of Epoxy Resign and how to use it within wood. Get creative and walk away with your very own piece of unique art.
An apron, tools and materials will all be provided, but we do recommend you wear old clothes.
Please be aware that Epoxy Resin takes about 7 days to fully dry and so you will have to pick this up from our studio at a later date. Alternatively, we can have your work of art delivered for a small postage fee!
Resin classes last approximately 3-4 hours.
We ensure quality. If your class doesn't reach your expectations, we'll give your money back.

It is perfect not only for beginners but also for people who have had experience working with wood before. You will learn about the different types of wood grain that can be used to make the products and choose the pieces you'd like to work with before making your board and finally finishing it off by personalising it with a pyrography pen. Then it's ready to take home and enjoy!
