Your Teacher

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.

Sarah - Jun 10, 2022
The workshop was good fun and informative, although quite pricey. Learning ranged from making the mould, to environment for handling resin, different types of resin, how to size the amount of resin needed, and making the block itself, etc. Some suggestions for future workshop: have a one-pager covering the key lessons so people can refer back rather than rely on memory. Would also be nice to be shown different pouring techniques for achieving different colour effects & transition.

Great fun learning the processes. Richard was a great teacher and we all produced products to cherish.

Fantastic introduction. Cant wait for part 2!
Julian Markson - Jun 5, 2022
Arrived knowing nothing about Epoxy Resin. Richard shared information with the group in a very patient and friendly way, and we all learnt so much. Starting with setting and creating a sealed frame, and inserting live edged timber, to mixing the epoxy resin to the correct formula, adding colour and pouring it into the frame to create the miniature (very miniature) live edged table. A fab way to spend a Saturday afternoon. Highly recommended.
Annette Seth - Jun 5, 2022
I had not worked with resin prior to this course and it was very insightful to the material and the possibilities of it. Richard was very informative and answered all the questions raised. The workshop is a great inspiring place in a good easy to access location.
Thomas - Jun 5, 2022
Learnt a lot about epoxy resin techniques, like preparing the mould and adding colour to the resin.
David - Jun 5, 2022
Fantastic course, great introduction to epoxy resin construction techniques including pouring. Call is delivered bye experienced technically competent tutor with great insight. I would thoroughly recommend this for any have a go resin enthusiasts.
Julie Clancy - Jun 4, 2022
A really informative session with lots of technical information. The class was well prepared and I’m excited to receive my finished please in a week #FreePostage ! My only advice would be to maybe offer an informative session (with all the technical bits) and a separate session for crafters (who don’t need all the technical stuff!)
Marilena - Jun 4, 2022
Great day today for my first ever experience of mixing colours and pouring epoxy. Loved every minute of it!
Emma - Jun 4, 2022
Excellent class! I’ve been wanting to learn this technique for ages, and it’s something I want to be able to teach my A Level Product Design students, so this was a great way to learn without the worry of having to trial and error. I really enjoyed the lesson, and the level of instruction was pitched just right. Amazing facilities and really well prepped for smooth running of the class. I feel confident that this is now something I can do on my own and I’m really excited to try this out again in my own workshop!
Andrew - May 16, 2022
I had great fun and I am inspired to learn more and make something wonderful.
Rebecca - May 15, 2022

Ellie - May 12, 2022

Federica Monsone - May 9, 2022
Very enjoyable afternoon. Good pace although it would have been good to have a larger group area so everyone could work together and see what everyone else was doing. But all in, a good way to get an intro into working with epoxy resin. Richard is a patient, knowledgeable, clear teacher and I enjoyed learning from him.
Wendy - May 9, 2022
Excellent workshop, very informative and just the right amount of info for a beginner. Richard is so knowledgeable, have already booked onto 2nd workshop! Thoroughly enjoyable morning!
Alessandra - May 8, 2022
Great workshop, very informative and perfect for those who wants to start playing with resin, either pouring or for crafts and upcycling. Richard is extremely knowledgeable and will tell you everything you need to know, great experienced teacher who helps and support while leaving you free to create. Relaxed and funny environment, I can’t wait to receive my river pour! Highly recommended, and I’m pretty sure I’ll be back for a second one… :)
Jim Gardner - May 8, 2022
A great course and a very knowledgeable teacher. Everything was explained well . This taught me a lot about resin usage and tips you wouldn’t know teaching yourself from a book. I would highly recommend anyone to join this class and learn about resin art
Ahmet Sakalli - May 8, 2022
The class was very good, informative, relaxed and fun from the beginning. Even though I didn’t know much about Epoxy resin I left the class with so many helpful information. Richard was calm, patient and was explaining every detail very well. I’m looking forward to our next classes. Excellent.
Jim Gardner - May 7, 2022
A very well planned beginners resin class with lots of information and inspiring tips. Will try to use everything I was taught there. Would totally recommend this course to anyone!!

Marco Spagnoli - Apr 22, 2022
Hi, I have learned a lot about how to manage the ingredients to get an epoxy resin work, now I know the importance of planning the right amount of resin involved, just to save money and time! Nice experience, thanks to Richard
Christine Yates - Apr 12, 2022
Really enjoyed my time there, and I learnt a lot of useful information.
Terry Wade - Apr 10, 2022
What a fantastic experience. Richard was absolutely fantastic. He has loads of knowledge that he is more than happy to share. He also does not spoon feed you all the information but actually makes you think and interact. I find that helps me retain more information and also enjoy the classes loads more. You will not be disappointed. The environment was clean and very well setup and safety is always at the forefront of everything we did. Learning new skills is always great but when you have a sublime instructor, it makes the whole experience just that little more emersive. Plus i get a cool looking project at the end of the session. Now on to part 2.
Hameeda Sultany - Apr 9, 2022
Really enjoyable afternoon learnt lots of practical information and guidance
Andy - Apr 7, 2022
I really liked the set up of the workshop and was very interested in the tools. It was really interesting to see a workshop dedicated to timber and epoxy. The teacher was excellent and was happy to answer all my questions and he explained things really well. It was useful to be able to park on site. I like forward to attending the part 2 follow-up workshop.
David Campbell - Apr 7, 2022
Very enjoyable day, Richard has all the knowledge.
Linda - Apr 7, 2022
Excellent course. Covered all the basis and I now feel confident to carry on at home with some element of success. Highly recommended.
Su Leppard - Apr 5, 2022
The beginners epoxy resin course was great fun and very informative. I recommend bringing a notepad to jot down useful info Richard provides, and watching some epoxy resin vids beforehand so you have some idea of what colours and effect you want to achieve. Highly recommended.
Marius - Apr 4, 2022
A very informative course and the teacher is friendly and very supportive. Anyone looking to learn how to use epoxy resin should definitely considering this course.
Farrol - Apr 3, 2022
This was an excellent intro class to Epoxy Resin working . Richard is very thorough and knowledgeable on the technical and creative side of Epoxy Resing making . I would prefer the class to be an extra 1/2 hour, so 3 hours as there is so much to take in. Highly recommend it for beginners!
Carla Lunedi - Apr 3, 2022
I truly enjoyed the course.The workshop is a good size room very bright; everything was set out for the learners beforehand. Richard is a competent and experienced teacher, his advice are very helpful. I look forward to seeing my little "piece of art"!! Thank you Richard.

Excellent afternoon, learnt a lot - cannot wait to try out the new skills we learnt at home! :)
Bridgit - Apr 2, 2022
Youtube epoxy resin videos piqued my interest. Thought before I spent loads of money trying it out, I'd get a professional to show me the ropes. My young adult children were also interested, so I arranged for all three of us to attend. Richard is an amazing teacher. He showed us the appropriate method and also explained the hidden risks that might become costly. We learnt that prep time is most important, everything else will fall into place if this is done right. We had an amazing time...together, which is quite difficult these days as the kiddies are older. Thanks Richard.
Alice James - Mar 14, 2022
This workshop was exactly the thing I needed to learn the basics of resin. Informative & helpful at every step of the way. Top notch!
Ciara - Mar 13, 2022
Fantastic session with Richard! Really excellent introduction into how to use epoxy resin and all of the exciting things you can do with it. Richard was very knowledgeable and very patient with all of our questions. A really fun course and a great introduction to the technique whether it be for a potential new hobby or for home/work DIY. I'm looking forward to the second class! :)

Review of Rivershop Beginners Epoxy Resin Workshop Course5th March 2022 13.30-16.00Facilitator: RichardRivershop StudiosI arrived slightly late to the course and the unit we were in is a little bit of a maze, but Rivershop had sent instructions.The only thing is the front gate has a coded pad on it. If it is locked, it is impossible to get in. The code would have been nice.The workshop is a long narrow room with high ceilings and the first thing I noticed was how well everything was set out, with benches for participants nearest the window and good lighting.Each person had a box with components in needed to complete the task.Richard himself was very good: clear, obviously very competent and knowledgeable, welcoming and wanting to get the best out of the group.He led us through the process of making a small river with epoxy from the frame to hold the wooden pieces and then adding the wood to make some coasters and then the epoxy.Each instruction was clear and repeated, going at everyone’s pace. No questions were treated as stupid and encouragement was given throughout.This was an enjoyable session with a palpable outcome: the epoxy river as promised and everyone made a river that (to my eyes) looked very good.As an introduction to epoxy resin, this was an excellent starter course, with good instruction and excellent materials and equipment. There is a follow up course to finish the coasters: sanding and finishing.I would have liked a handout at the end: Richard said that they had stopped them because people didn’t take them home – maybe just give people the choice whether they want it or not ?All in all, an excellent course that did what it said on the tin.Chris Price

Richard really knows his stuff - but he also has an excellent way of sharing that information, tailoring his style to the different abilities in the group. I can't recommend the course highly enough!

Alicia Gelassakis - Mar 6, 2022
A very informative and enjoyable course, covering the basics, the potential pitfalls and the great possibilities. It would be nice to leave with some written handouts to help remember and consolidate the information as there is a lot to take in, but still an excellently taught course.
John and Anna Marino - Mar 6, 2022
Very informative and friendly class, Myself and my husband went together and even though we new a little about the resin we picked up a few tips. Richard was very helpfull and we look forward to doing other courses in the future,x

Jessica Wilkey - Feb 13, 2022
I booked this course for my husband as a Christmas gift and he absolutely loved it. He found it very informative and good fun. He's already been out to buy new tools and wood so he can get started at home. He spoke very highly of Richard and said he'd definitely recommend - 5 stars from us! Thank you!

My11 year old daughter and I absolutely LOVED our beginners course with Richard! He was a great teacher and took the time to explain things clearly and answer all our questions. It was a wonderful into to working with resin and wood and we will definitely be coming back for more classes!!
Laura - Feb 7, 2022
I bought this course for my son and myself. It was a fantastic and enjoyable day learning all about Resin and more. Richard is very knowledgable, enthusiastic, and a great instructor. Looking forward to the second part. Thanks for a wonderful day.
Nicola Harrison - Feb 7, 2022
Thank you so much for such a lovely introduction to Expoxy resin. I had such a great afternoon on your beginners course. Richard’s knowledge, experience and passion coupled with a desire to help others to develop their skills and craft make this really enjoyable, informative and relaxed. I loved the workshop set up with the shop area next next door. Well done for creating such a great space to deliver your courses and to share your experience. It was great to share the workshop with so many nice people. I would be great to see how everyone’s pieces turn out. Do you add them to your Facebook group or Instagram? Is there an optimum (maximum) timescale to return for part 2? I would love to attend part 2 to create the coasters. Is it possible to have delivered both parts over one weekend ( for those lose travelling from further afield)? Or not really feasible with drying times? Is there much call for a cuppy after the class when we have all got to know each other a little bit? A nice social way to end the course. Thank you again. Your course has exceeded all my expectations. So grateful you could accommodate me. Kindest regards Nicola

Helen Elliot - Feb 5, 2022
Richard is a great teacher, very knowledgeable answering all the questions that were fired at him. We will be back!
Prathab - Feb 5, 2022
This was amazing! I sense an addiction growing inside me :) But seriously the class was great, Richard is a brilliant teacher and explains everything in detail so you genuinely understand how things work the way they do, plus he's pretty funny. It really motivated me to do more classes. The studio itself is well equipped and clean, when you walk in to where you'll be working everything is pre laid out for you (your material, pencils, glue guns etc) so you don't really need to move from that spot until the end when you move your work away so that was really useful. The unit is compact but enough for 8-10 people as everything seems to be thought out in detail. i.e the glue guns are wireless so you don't have cables going everywhere. Simple things like having name tags as well so you don't have awkward moments when you want to ask someone for help is a nice touch. I may have been lucky but the crowd of people who were there were great too which made the experience all the better. I think it's important to note that what you actually make on your first session is different to the picture, it's more like an A5 notepad (slightly thinner) and a bit taller, it's the basis for one long piece to make 2 coasters from, which if you chose to do will be in your second session. I'll be back for the "Part II" and the plan is to build a table at some point his year :)
Martin - Feb 4, 2022
Great course Great guy. I currently wrote a review saying average and I have tried to change it. There was some misunderstanding myself. So 100% Great course and apologies
Kate H - Jan 13, 2022
Richard was a great teacher and walked us through using resin & the basics of making river tables. Would recommend!
Matteo Errigo - Jan 12, 2022
The workshop was fun and informative. They properly teach you how to make an epoxy resin river so that you can then do it by yourself. The actual project does not really look like the pictures on the booking page but it's a rather small and thin sample (the size of an envelope and 1 cm thick).
Jason Eyles - Jan 10, 2022
I would definitely recommend this course to anyone interested in working with epoxy resin, Richard was very knowledgeable and was happy to answer any and all questions.

Joanne Farrell - Jan 9, 2022

Would definitely recommend this workshop.

Bought the workshop as a Xmas gift for my other half and we both really enjoyed it.

The venue was great. We learned a lot about resin and completed an exercise preparing the wood, calculating and mixing Resin. Then the fun part of mixing colours and designing how you wish your piece to look. The teacher knows everything about this topic. Resin is very serious and his knowledge proves it. He made it enjoyable and was very encouraging.

The resin art class is an amazing workshop to learn tips, the resin quality and techniques, and the step-by-step process. Thank you Richard for sharing your knowledge and experience and I look forward to take other classes and learn more about the resin art.
Sheri Sultan - Dec 5, 2021
Richard was very informative and I have left the class with a very basic understanding of using resin. I do however feel the class was a little too large for the actual workshop we were in. Myself and my group (of 5) were in quite a cramped area with no natural light. The rest of the attendees in the class were on the other side of the room on a large table with lots more light. Richard seemed to focus on that side of the room for most of the class. Just a small criticism, but when I asked a question and needed help, Richard told me to hang on and wait. It would have been nice to have the help i needed as everyone processes information differently.
Keily Potter - Dec 5, 2021

Jemima - Nov 13, 2021
Loved it! Gave us the confidence to try a project of our own and taught us all the do’s and don’ts. Great host. Made us very comfortable
Julie Johnson - Nov 12, 2021
Great course learnt more of the tips and tricks needed for a successful project from creating the mould, calculating the mixture needed to complete the pour and colour mixes. Would love to know how to book for the 2nd day and the cost...

My wife and I spent a great morning with Richard. The venue was lovely and well organized. The teacher was kind, patient, and funny. We simply loved it!
Peter Handcock - Nov 8, 2021
I was interested in this course because it was an essential first step to a much larger project that I have in mind. The clarity of the information given and the friendly delivery and chat amongst fellow students made for a most enjoyable afternoon, and a brilliant first step for my project.
Anne Handcock - Nov 8, 2021
I had no preconceptions about this course, and being in my 70’s I wondered if I would keep up. No need to be concerned, Richard was a very competent and friendly teacher, made sure everyone was comfortable with the information and lent a hand with any practical difficulties. I thoroughly enjoyed making the first piece I have done, and have the appetite for more. It may be the start of a brand new hobby. The venue was well equipped, and the arrival instructions actually worked out perfectly although it seemed a little deserted when we got there early! I would thoroughly recommend.

Attended the Epoxy Resin Workshop on Sat 6 Nov in Woolwich. Thoroughly enjoyed the experience. Richard is a great teacher, and took us carefully through the various stages, so at the end we had created beautiful mini epoxy resin river tables. Fantastic, and I can't wait to receive it when it's dried. Thanks Maria

If you are interested in getting into epoxy this is the course for you. Richard was great. He explained how everything worked and interacted with the whole group. Recommended.
Ross Trowbridge - Oct 6, 2021
So much fun! Had a blast with this course. It was well planned, explained, educational and had great fun making my river piece. As a complete novice, never having done any epoxy before, I can’t recommend enough how at ease and comfortable I felt and would urge anyone reading this to get booked in. Hopefully I’ll be back for another course one day soon. Thank you!
Mark Brown - Oct 5, 2021
I enjoyed the class on Saturday, it was a good experience and to try something new. Richard explained everything clearly and was helpful. I am now looking forward to seeing my cured board and joining Part 2 soon. Thank you
Debra Wickins - Oct 5, 2021
Absolute loved this little craft workshop. This was the perfect birthday gift for me! I have wanted to try resin for a long time but was not confident enough. Richard, the teacher, was amazing and explained everything in great detail. I came away with the confidence to give it a go by myself. Would highly recommend this for any crafty lovers out there that want to try something new.
Steve Katzarski - Oct 4, 2021
Had great fun at the workshop, Richard is very knowledgable and experienced. Highly recommend for anyone looking to try something new!
Angela Hodgkins - Oct 4, 2021
Learned how to prepare the mould, the wood and the epoxy resin in the first stage of making a pair of coasters. Very useful basic info for someone wishing to pursue this as either a hobby or business and very easy to understand. Highlighted potential pitfalls that could be very costly.
Brogan Jones - Oct 3, 2021
Was good fun and the teacher was very knowledgable and patient, staying after class to answer my questions.
Tanya Cordrey - Oct 3, 2021

Lisa Coote - Oct 3, 2021
All the equipment that we needed to be able do our Epoxy Course was conveniently in our own plastic tray for us. Richard was a great tutor, he explained everything meticulously and we were able to ask any questions we needed. He was keen to share his knowledge and I now feel very happy that I can make something with confidence. I would definitely recommend this course.
Shig - Oct 3, 2021
Did the beginners class, its a very good 1st step into working with resin, there's alot more too it than you'd think. Richard has extensive knowledge and shares it well. Every step is very clearly and simply explained. Highly recommended.
Tim Allen - Oct 3, 2021
Overall very good, great fun and I learned a lot, loads of useful tips and advice. I was also very happy with the result. The only criticism I would make is that there were a lot of people on the workshop and it was fairly full on with a lot to cover - a break in the middle for tea and discussion would have been very welcome, rather than at the beginning.
Emma bruggenwirth - Oct 3, 2021
Richard was really informative and happy to answer any questions. It was a very hands on course and it was great to get really creative at the end with the colours of the resin. Excited to get started and try it at home.
James Austin - Sep 18, 2021
Learned a lot in an afternoon and I’d be confident in taking on bigger projects in future. Richard a great friendly tutor.

Jay - Sep 6, 2021
What a fabulous way to spend a Saturday! My wife and I had an enjoyable morning in the company of Richard, the course tutor, and some friendly fellow participants. We learnt about many aspects of working with epoxy resin - including design issues, health & safety and practical considerations. We not only learnt the theory, but were taken step by step through the hands-on process of making our own wood and resin coasters. Richard was a great teacher - knowledgeable and friendly. We shall definitely be back for Part Two of the course.
Andrew Cooper - Sep 5, 2021
Many thanks to friendly forces Courses for the epoxy resins beginners learning experience on Saturday, very informative and made easy to understand. Highly recommended
Ian Whitlock - Sep 5, 2021
Great course - thoroughly enjoyable! Richard is able to set out the key principles of using epoxy resin, and the use these principles to make a simple board. I will be back to attend the follow on course !
Amma - Sep 5, 2021
Fantastic, fun class with a kind, patient teacher. Learnt a lot about the process and had a lot of fun working on our own creation. The teacher gave us great tips and watch outs for working with resin on our own - super helpful to hear from straight an expert.
Liz Edwins - Sep 4, 2021
I was a complete beginner to work with epoxy resin and I learned lots of the practical skills, principles and also how to put your own artistic stamp on your work. My class was run by Richard who was very welcoming and interesting. He made me feel at ease so I felt able to ask questions and check when I wasn’t sure. The workshop is light, airy and was set in an interesting creative hub. I had a really great morning and certainly want to come back for the second part of the course.

Lamia Estatie - Aug 23, 2021
Thoroughly enjoyed the Beginners Epoxy workshop! I attended with my mom and we were welcomed from the start. Richard was friendly, professional and happy to answer questions about working with resin. I learned a lot and feel equipped with enough information to go ahead and start my own project. Will certainly be recommending this workshop to my friends!
Anne Woollett - Aug 23, 2021
Excellent course, conducted in a great group and delivered by a fantastic tutor. Richard took us through the process of creating a scaled down river table at a comfortable pace, taking the time to ensure we had a solid understanding of the processes involved, and giving us plenty of opportunity to explain our aspirations and plans with regard to future projects, and then apply the process to those concepts. It was great to be able to get a pragmatic perspective on the subject - emphasing how we can realistically reduce the cost of working with resin, how to avoid common mistakes, and ensuring our planning and preparation is on point. It gives me a great deal of confidence in working with resin on small and large projects alike. In addition, I just really enjoyed the process of being creative with resin - in the past, it's been a case of working quickly to ensure I get it done without making major mistakes... but here I was confident that I could take my time, learn, be creative, and it would still work out. All in all, a brilliant experience and a valuable new skill. Thank you!
Anthony Marsh - Aug 23, 2021
Brilliant course! Excellent facilitator
Wenying Li & Tom Bennett - Aug 22, 2021
Tom and I had a great time at this class. I have always loved epoxy resin river tables and there is no other class like this in London. We have worked with resin on a smaller scale before, but it was fun learning to do it with wooden boards, and constructing the mould etc. It's relaxing, mindful and creative. And there arent't too many people, so the teacher has time to answer everyone's questions.
Salma - Aug 21, 2021
The workshop was fantastic. Richard was welcoming, friendly and happy to answer all questions. He walked us through the steps very clearly and provided all the information needed for us to go home and get started on a project. Highly recommend!
James Josling - Aug 21, 2021
An excellent introduction to epoxy resin. Very relaxed atmosphere and lots of tips on how to do your own projects
Mark Hollyhead - Aug 21, 2021
Great course (beginners epoxy resin), clear steps and help regardless of previous experience. Richard very informative and supportive, as well as keen people go away and practice the skills.
Tilly Steed - Aug 10, 2021
I thoroughly enjoyed the course I took part in and would highly recommend. I’ve always enjoyed making new things and had given resin a go before but never seemed to have a good outcome. I feel as if no YouTube video could help me as much as this course did it was clear with instructions and the teacher was extremely friendly and helped out the whole team. He was very open to answering questions and made the activity more enjoyable. It opened my eyes to try new things at home and I would love to take part in another activity like this soon. Overall it was a very pleasant experience and one I would recommended to others in the future.

Had a great time as an intermediate resin user at the resin beginners course part 1, despite having worked with resin and paint alone previously I still learnt a lot from this course in terms of woodworking and combining resin and wood properly :)

Jacqui Bertie-White - Aug 9, 2021
What a great class to start my epoxy resin journey. I didn’t really know fully what to expect from the class, as I’ve never used resin before. It’s amazing what things you can use it for. I am buzzing with ideas now. The course, run by Richard, was taught at just the right pace for everyone to follow. Richard was full of very detailed information for us and nothing was too much trouble to answer, no matter how small. It was a nice sized class and just right for the room size. I will definitely be coming back for the Epoxy Resin Part 2 class.
Maureen Brown - Aug 9, 2021
My main reason for going on the course was to see what I was doing wrong with my try at mixing the resins Richard pointed me in the right direction. I would recommend this course to anyone into resin I learnt so much and really enjoyed it. Richard teaches at a good speed not fast so you can follow him and ask him questions.
baneesh chopra - Aug 9, 2021
Great informative beginners class into Epoxy Resin, very helpful teacher and great learning environment. They also ensured we were all comfortable from a Covid Social Distancing perspective. Well worth it!
clive steed - Aug 8, 2021
Really great course. Resin looks easy on YouTube but there was no substitute for being in a room with an expert answering questions and demonstrating things in a relaxed and pleasant environment. Picked up some really useful tips and now feel more confident to give things a go. Will certainly come back. Plenty of parking COVID procedure was all good. A great day many thanks.
David Norwood - Aug 7, 2021
A few things I learned was measuring resin, in a covid19 friendly environment, instructors took in account my disability, ps you don't always see this in courses, questions where answered and a worthwhile course, a enjoyable day out learned a lot and can't wait for the results to get home.

Superb intro course to resin. Everything was provided and the pace was perfect, it was good fun, meeting others interested in the same thing. The tutors enthusiasm came through and he gave enough time to each as well as providing great tips. Do this course if you have an interest in resin art.
Sue r - Jul 3, 2021
The team were very friendly and helpful.
Maggie L - Jul 1, 2021
Really enjoyable and informative beginners course. My partner and I attended - having been mesmerized by river pours on YouTube, and wanting to trial the technique ourselves - maybe have a go at a larger project down the track. Richard, the instructor, was patient, detailed and eager to inspire people to have a go with a project. The class if well paced, and stepped out - as you make a mold, mix your resin and then pour. The end result is a board, but you can come back to part 2 to create coasters. Thank you - we had an enjoyable workshop and learned a lot! :)
Steven - Jun 30, 2021
Great beginner's class for those interested in learning the basics. Teaching was clear and at a pace suitable for all. We look forward to seeing the finished product!
Janine Khoshnevisan - Jun 29, 2021
I did this course recently and was thoroughly impressed. The process was well explained with plenty of hints and tips on how to continue with this medium on your own afterwards. In spite of us all being complete beginners we produced stunning and sometimes surprisingly interesting results. No two were the same. I would highly recommend this course.
Ros - Jun 28, 2021
Richard is a great teacher. I especially appreciated the insider knowledge he provides on the practicalities of working with resin, and the expensive mistakes that are so easily made. A great course.

Alison Bailey - May 19, 2021
It was a very good course. It gave a good insight to know how and where to start with making a resin table. Richard was very informative about the subject matter and knew his craft well. If you would like to know how to make a resin table - this course would be very beneficial as a starting point. I had 2 guests with me and they really enjoyed the experience too.
john greening - May 18, 2021
Pros. The teacher was friendly, funny and welcoming. Parking is good. Mould making concept was well explained. Concepts of resin, weighing and mixing are very well explained. Time is well spent making sure each student understood the volume calculations. Teacher happy to stay back to answer any and all questions and offers email advice. Cons. Group quite large (12ish) Not take away notes. Project wasn't a usable item (6 inch chopping board?) Very structured, so no options what you are making or for embedded items in the cast etc. Volume calculations didn't work so the Mould was half empty. Mould was pre-cut. Wood was pre-cut. Torching out bubbles was a 'watch only' experience as no one was allowed to touch the torch. Most bubble were missed so the project wasn't worth keeping. Temp, humidity etc are mentioned as important but not explained. Course was not as described. The course states 2.5 hours but is really 2 hours at most and it is not a course, it is only PART of a basic course. Even though is states...... WHAT HAPPENS IN THIS CLASS? ...... walk away with your very own unique live edge pour. This not true. The class stops at the pouring stage. Instead of bringing out solid pours to use to learn the full process you are told you have to pay £90 more to finish your first one on another day. Therefore you don't learn milling, planing, routing, sanding, wet flatting, polishing, waxing, etc. This could be a very good course.
Joseph Frost - May 18, 2021
Great intro course for all things resin! Richard was a really knowledgeable and empathetic tutor who had time for everyone on the course no matter the level. Can't wait to book on to part 2

Richard is a good instructor. He knew I was a complete novice and took the time to guide me through the process. I came in with zero knowledge, and left the session with a good understanding of how I could make my own resin creation. Well worth the time and the money.
FAIZA KASSIM - Mar 22, 2021

Would recommend this course to anyone, even if you think you're not very artistic - you will be guided through the process which is easy to follow.

Great course! Really enjoyable, easy to follow and very informative! I really enjoyed this course and learnt a lot, this will really help me in the future with my resin projects. The venue was really easy to find and the teacher was also great.
Gus - Nov 7, 2020
After recently being made redundant from a job i had been doing for 35 years & no longer enjoying, i decided it would be nice to do something that i would enjoy. After looking at images of river tables & finding them fascinating i booked myself on the river table course. It turned out to be a wise move as the course has left me with a confidence that i didn't have before attending. I have looked at many videos on this subject but nothing has given me the confidence to try & make a river table on my own. I would highly recommend taking this course if you are thinking of making one of these amazing tables.
Anna Moran - Nov 4, 2020
Really interesting, informative course. I only went to keep a friend company, as we have a shared love of all things crafty, but I ended up getting a lot more out of it than expected and would now love to explore the medium of resin more. Thanks Richard for a great experience. Would definitely recommend to anyone considering this course.
Greg - Nov 3, 2020
Great workshop, really enjoyed the experience. Very informative and fun.
Nicci - Nov 1, 2020
Wow. Brilliant. Theory & pitfalls explained. Richard was very good. Would recommend even if you are doing smaller pieces. My husband and I really enjoyed it very much indeed. If you want to take up a new hobby this is a perfect starter to get you going. Well done Richard & Thank you so much. The Blackburn's.
Julia Seymour - Oct 31, 2020
The course was really good. I learned all the basics that I need to know to get started with epoxy resin. Everything was provided, teacher was very knowledgeable, venue was good. I can't wait to get my finished piece once it's fully dried! Thank you :)
Karen Griffith - Oct 31, 2020
Great course, definitely has me hooked on exploring epoxy resin further and creating more pieces. Richard very informative and clearly loves what he does. Highly recommended
Simon Au - Oct 31, 2020
Thoroughly enjoyed the epoxy resin course. It was well organised and the staff are really helpful and friendly. Highly recommend this beginners course and look forward to the full table making course. Simon & Karen
Adam Sheppard - Oct 31, 2020
Really good course. I learn't lots of little tricks advice which I wouldn't have been able to get easily online. Course was a very good length. Instructor was very friendly and helpful.
Yiannis - Oct 27, 2020
The workshop was very enjoyable and a great introduction into Epoxy Resin and using it to craft things at home as a hobby. The workshop covers some good topics such as calculating how much resin you need and the ratio mix with hardener etc. Richard is very friendly and happy to answer any questions you might have.
Andy Proudfoot - Oct 25, 2020
Attended this course with a friend with a view to ultimately making small tables at home. The location is very easy to find and the workshop was the perfect size for our class of 12 people. The instructor was very knowledgeable and able to answer all our weird questions! I would absolutely recommend this course if you're interested in any table projects.
Michelle - Oct 18, 2020
Really enjoyed the morning but a lot to take in .Richard was very good ,and explained things well . It would be helpful to have some information to take away of everything we covered in the class , dos and donts , etc . We tried to jot some notes down but whilst doing this you can miss other things being explained . We are looking to incorporate resin art in our current business therefore more information to recap on after the day ,the better . We are going to book another class with Richard to extend on what we have learnt so far . We were also well looked after with teas and coffees being made for us whenever we wanted which was an extended bonus !!
Ian - Oct 18, 2020
Intro to Epoxy Resin Course was very good. Learnt a lot and would look to do more courses delivered by Richard. Even let me spend some extra time on my work after the course to correct a mistake. Thank you. Can’t wait to receive my piece. I am a visual learner so a step by step quick demo at each stage would have meant a lot less class questions and mistakes but still a great course. 👍
Will - Oct 18, 2020
Very good workshop run by Richard. Learnt a lot and now looking forward to starting some new exciting projects. Very covid secure environment. Looking forward to more workshops with Friendly Forces Construction soon!
Deepa - Oct 18, 2020

Ian - Oct 12, 2020
Richard is a very good tutor and the course was well run and at exactly the right level. Looking forward to the next course that we will have with him.
Sophie - Oct 10, 2020
Really cool workshop. Decided to give it a try with no experience or really any idea what to do, but feel confident now that I could figure it out and build something I'm proud of by myself.
Alex - Oct 6, 2020
I really enjoyed the course and had fun getting creative! Richard explained everything really clearly and was very friendly and approachable. I felt safe with the Covid-19 measures in place and we were given the option of leaving at anytime if we felt unsafe. Would recommend to anyone wishing to explore the world of epoxy resin. Great advice and a fab place to start!
Owen - Oct 6, 2020
It was great. All appropriate COVID precautions had been put in place and the course itself was brilliant. The teacher was knowledgeable, helpful, explained everything clearly and was happy to answer any questions or provide general guidance. Very glad we chose this course.,
Rachel Jecks - Oct 6, 2020
I had a great time attending the resin workshop on Saturday, the venue was excellent (and covid rules adhered to thoroughly throughout), but it was the quality of teaching that really made the course stand out. I came away having learnt a lot in a short space of time without feeling overwhelmed, and the practical hands-on approach to learning how to prepare a mould and mix the resin was fantastic.
Felix - Oct 5, 2020
Brilliant course! Richard had all the answers to some very detailed questions. Friendly atmosphere and excited to have a go at some tables! Thanks for a great day!
Anna - Oct 4, 2020
Brilliant day, full of lots of information for resin casing, would highly recommend it for any beginner
Mark - Oct 4, 2020
Our tutor was very welcoming and great though out! Helpful with any questions we had, patient and knowledgable! The course it’s self was also great It gave you all the knowledge and skills you needed to start you own small projects! Couldn’t have had a better experience!!!
Natasha Poole - Oct 4, 2020
What an excellent experience. I learned so much which will enable me to start out, creating different and unique pieces using epoxy resin. The teacher was very informative and explained each step in detail and made it easy to understand. It was a great venue with parking which was a bonus.
Luke - Oct 4, 2020
Richard is a fantastic instructor and the course was great. Very knowledgeable about his craft and answered every question well. Highly recommend and we will be heading back for his new courses

Well paced, informative and a great introduction to a new world of crafting
Dev Mandavia - Oct 3, 2020
I learned exactly what i intended to when i was booked the course. The course was informative and the experience was excellent as my first time working with epoxy together with wood. Richard (the teacher) was very informative and friendly. Managed to help with all of my questions and provide some insight into the epoxy world beyond just the course. Easily accessible location with ample parking, and just right for the purposes for the course.
Alex - Sep 29, 2020
Quick and very informative course . Enjoyed it 10/10
Louise - Sep 24, 2020
As a beginner using Epoxy Resin this course is a great introduction about how to get it right, and learn the important steps about how not to make an expensive mistake! Richard gives you confidence to experiment, is reassuring with his depth and breadth of knowledge on the subject and is calm, cool and collected balancing the needs of the class. The venue was well set up to follow current Government guidelines and gave us the space we needed to work.
Emily - Sep 22, 2020
Richard was friendly, patient, knowledgable and open to asking any questions participants had. Great workshop!
Kenny Gillanders - Sep 22, 2020
As someone who has tried working with resin before I really enjoyed this course. The teacher, Richard, was friendly and answered all questions in a clear and easy to understand way. Some of the little tips he gave us I feel will be invaluable for me going forward. As with everything during Covid-19 I was a little apprehensive about attending course, but I need not have been as the workshop was set out well and those in attendance had good space around them.
Kenny - Sep 22, 2020
I have to admit I was a little apprehensive about attending the class, but our teacher, Richard, put us all at ease and the workshop was well laid out. The class itself was informative and well paced, Richard took time to answer all questions. The explaining of what can go wrong and how to fix them helped me see where I'd been going wrong when I'd tried working with resin previously. Richard was friendly and easy to approach with queries. Will definitely recommend this course to others.
Sonia - Sep 22, 2020
The course was fun interactive and very informative. Richard answered all our doubts. The timing mentioned in details was 12 to 3.45 but we were free by 2.15. For the fees we paid i guess we could have made one more project all by ourselves. But nonetheless the course was great. Thanks Obby.
Louise - Sep 21, 2020
This workshop was so much more than i expected! I thoroughly enjoyed it and would recommend it to everyone who want to widen knowledge of using Epoxy Resin! The way everything was explained made it very easy to grasp and understand what I needed to do and why. I was very happy with how Richard taught the group and i would like to attend again to make harder and larger design :) India
Viviana - Sep 20, 2020
The course was good and friendly. It covered a lot of basic and there was plenty of time for questions. I would definitely recommend this course as it was a nice afternoon
Fiona Gruchy-Craven - Sep 20, 2020
Richard was informative and friendly with all the information useful and relevant. No question was too small for him to answer. the pace of the course was perfect and gives you confidence to start your first project using resin. I would definitely recommend this course.
Katie Chittenden - Sep 9, 2020
I really enjoyed this course. It was easy to understand but an important course to take when wanting to get creative with epoxy resin. I was also pleased with the social distancing and hygiene undertaken.

Manrina - Sep 6, 2020
I enjoyed learning how to use epoxy resin. I would have liked to have created something useful at the end. I guess what we created can be used as decorative art. It was certainly interesting and got my creative juices flowing.
Roxanne - Sep 6, 2020
Very pleased I attended this course. The teacher is informative, knowledgeable and patient. Happy to answer questions and give lots of guidance.
