Resin Earring Making Workshop

The resin earring class was great. Brooklyn was super helpful answering any questions and helping us all to mix up wonderful colours. It was lots of fun and was great to see how creative everyone was with their colours to make a huge range of earrings. I can't wait to go back and assemble my pieces to make some amazing earring sets! - Haylie

Enjoy a fun and educational night of learning to earring making with RESIN at our Brisbane workshop studio! Resin is a medium that has gained a lot of popularity recently, but not a lot of people have had a chance to try it! Bring the wine and your friends, and let's get arty!

  • 3 hour workshop
  • Guided by an experienced resin earring maker
  • 2 resin mixes, and a total of 6 colours/glitters
  • Your choice of style - big, small, bright, neutral, ect..
  • Create up to 10 pairs of earrings
  • Come back once your pieces are cured and sanded to assemble your earrings in our DIY jewellery studio, where you have full access to our complete range of stainless steel earring findings and metal connector pieces in fun shapes and sizes. This is included in your ticket price.
*Please note that DO NOT provide aprons. Resin can be messy and we recommend that you don't wear your favourite outfit! Secondly, resin can have a chemical smell to it. We have nice high ceilings and a large space to do this activity safely, but please consider whether this workshop is right for you if you have sensitivity to smells.

Resin Safety

Resin is classified as "hazardous" according to the National Occupational Health and Safety Commission (NOHSC).

Some types and brands of resin are more toxic than others. At Blushery, we have chosen to use Just Resin Artcast Slow 3:1. This resin has a low toxicity compared to others on the market. The safety data sheets can be found here  and here and should be read thoroughly before deciding to participate in a resin workshop.

Participants in a resin workshop MUST be aged 16+, and we do not recommend this workshop to pregnant women.

............................................................................

As recommended on the safety data sheets:

Ventilators are required where there is inadequate ventilation. The Blushery studio is a large room with 3.1 meter high ceilings, and pedestal fans are used to push the air towards the open door. 

*In the event that a participant's breathing is affected by the use of resin, they will be immediately moved outside to recover, and will be closely monitored so see if further action needs to be taken. Medical treatment may be required if symptoms worsen.

Eye protection is recommended if your application of the resin could cause splashback. However, in a resin earring workshop, small amounts of resin are stirred slowly and carefully poured into earring molds. Therefore, "splashing" is extremely unlikely. 

*In the event that a participant gets resin in their eye, the eye will be immediately rinsed thoroughly with water. Medical treatment may be needed if symptoms worsen.

Gloves are recommended to prevent resin from coming in contact with the skin. All participants in a resin workshop are provided with gloves. 

*In the event that a participant develops irritation to the skin, the area will be thoroughly washed with soap and water. Medical treatment may be required if symptoms worsen.

..........................................................................

Heating/torching resin:

Applying heat/flame to resin once poured is a method used to bring air bubbles to the surface for a glossy finish. This is a technique that we have chosen NOT to use in our workshops, as heating the resin causes more vapours to be released from the resin. 

Curing time:

Resin takes a full 7 days to cure. The full curing process must take place before resin is sanded. In the event that earring pieces are de-molded and need to be sanded back due to overfilling the mold, this can be done after 7 days of curing time. Not all resin pieces need to be sanded, so participants can collect their earring pieces as early as 24 hours after the class, depending on our opening hours.
