SILICONE MOULD & RESIN JEWELLERY MAKING WORKSHOP Saturday 8 April, 1pm – 5pm $160 Presented by Barnes Products, Chatswood

This specialist masterclass will teach you the techniques of making your own bangle mould from scratch. Bring along a bangle you love and learn how to make a mould from it, or select one of our bangles on display, the choice is yours. Please note: if the item you bring is too large or has features that make it unable to be moulded on the day, you can choose from one of the bangles in our range to make your mould.

This masterclass allows you to explore the mouldmaking process and to learn how to cast with resin. For those who have already attended the Resin Jewellery Workshop, this class will allow you to learn mouldmaking techniques while also expanding your resin casting skills.

In the first part of the masterclass, you will learn how to create a mould box, prepare your bangle and make your mould out of Pinkysil silicone rubber.

In the second part of this workshop you get to select one of our bangle and ring moulds to learn the art of resin casting, whilst you wait for your mould to set. Choose your colours and designs and then work with our instructor to handcraft a unique resin bangle.

During the last stage of the masterclass, you will get to reveal your new bangle mould and finish the resin cast you’ve just made, ready to wear home and show off to your friends and family.

What You Will Learn
• Learn how to use a mould box
• Create a silicone mould
• Cast a bangle in resin

What You Get
• A mould, a resin bangle, and resin, left over silicone and pigments to take home.
