Hi. I wish to have a Richard as a teacher through my education haha. Can’t recommend him more highly. I come as a beginner and end up doing all floors and shower panels at my flat by myself. Second course I came to learn how to do a river tables to upgrade my furniture. I’m very well prepared after the course with Richard so will be pure enjoyment to do something unique.

Brilliant. Two days very much hands on from a true novice to acheive a beautiful table top. Atrisan environment, light, airy, everything you need and when it comes to tools - the best in the market. Feeling like I'd done everything myself but also realising how Richard provided instruction, guidance as well as small nudges and artistic insightul encouragement to maximise both our enjoyment and recovery from our mistakes throughout. Yes we went over the posted hours, but to be honest, being absorbed and involved inthe whole resin river table process felt like time didn't matter. Two outcomes - walking away with a resin river table I made and am proud of as well as a trigger to explore further with the lessons I have gained. And don't get me going on the absolute joy of having such free access to the Festool tools. Richard is a great facilitator - teacher or trainer is too harsh, and obviously glows in the successes his students achieve.

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.

Had a great class and lots of fun. A very relaxed but informative session and made some lovely pieces of art which I can’t wait to put up at home! Thank you

I decided to book a one-on-one river coffee table course after becoming concerned that the millions of YT videos available may not cover all the pitfalls of trying to attempt such a thing, alone. My initial contact with Richard was great and he was very accommodating with dates and times that suited me. The course itself was amazing. Dan was an excellent, patient and kind teacher - whom I bombarded with questions - and who took me through each stage, step by step, with loads of encouragement and plenty of good humour. During moments of self doubt, Dan was full of great advice and gentle, but firm, persuasion - even when it came to using certain power tools for the first time! I have learned so much and and am over the moon with my table. Knowing that I have access to Dan & Richard's expertise and the other resources they have recommended to me, moving forward, and that I have copious amounts of notes to refer to (and of course, the memories of everything I was taught), I now feel confident to tackle a project on my own. Thank you, River Shop. I will be back. The workshops and overall setting of your location are a creative's dream!

I’ve been interested in doing a resin project for a long time but haven’t got the experience or knowledge & always felt it was very daunting but Richard put me at ease. He was very professional & explained everything in great detail. He has a very calm nature & made everything seem easier than I had imagined. Will deffo book up for more projects in future. 👍👍

Richard was a very knowledgeable instructor who gave us lots of useful instruction and advice to continue this craft, I had a great course and am really pleased with my coffee table.

A really brilliant workshop! Richard and Dan were expert, helpful, and also patient where I had no previous carpentry experience. I love my table!
Caroline Caroline - 16 January 2023
Very happy with my class and the table. The class was well organised and I learnt lots.
Aleksei Shevchenko - 20 June 2022
It is a really good workshop. I enjoyed the process of making a coffee table. Richard was very helpful and explained lots of details in the process. This workshop is suitable for the complete beginners like I am. Also in during the course learned few ideas how to improve my garage working space and gained some experience with professional tools.
Sushil Rajput - 13 June 2022
Really enjoyed the introduction and first part of coffee table making course. Will be doing part 2 next week. The trainer Richard is very friendly and his approach to teaching is very professional and encourages students to understand all aspects to safely and accurately use resin. If you have an interest in wood working and/or resin pours, I highly recommend this course.

I’m so pleased that I invested in this course. I now have the confidence to execute all of my design ideas, using epoxy resin with wood for coffee/console tables and moulds to create decorative home’s accessories. Richard is a master at his craft and an excellent teacher. I highly recommended this course.
Caroline Caroline - 10 January 2022
Fantastic course, it gave me the confidence to try it on my own. The tutor was informative and happy to share with us the answers to our questions. Will hopefully be booking another course soon.

JOHN HUME - 16 June 2021
I have previously attended a course run by Richard Wagner which was excellent in all respects. Richard was extremely well prepared with good facilities and material for the project. He is very skilled on the techniques and also has a generous and informative style of teaching that encourages all skill levels to take part. I would thoroughly recommend Richard and the course.
Claire Shugart - 18 May 2021
Amazing course, I enjoyed every minute of it, seeing my river table come to life was immensely satisfying and the instruction has left me more confident with both tools and materials.
