What to Expect
Escape the distractions of the world with our fun 'LET'S GET STICKY' resin and ink workshops.
Like any paint medium, what you can create with resin and ink colours is only limited by your imagination and we look forward to helping you release your inner creative juices, in a welcoming fun environment.
You will be producing two works of art, a 38cm disk or square. And we will show you how to gold leaf the base of one of your pieces. We have a large selection of coloured quality inks to choose from, so you can personalise your art for you and your home. You may want to bring images or colour ideas for inspiration.
Check out our instagram page for a visual treat.
Our Facebook page has lot's of goodies too.
The workshop will take about two-hours, with a debrief and refreshments supplied after completion of the workshop.
The resin takes at least a day to be touch dry, so you can pick up your artworks in a few days. We supply everyone with plate hangers to hang your pieces with pride in your home.
I only use a top quality product called ArtResin which has no VOC’s (Volatile Organic Compounds) so is not smelly or toxic but please wear old clothes and shoes, an apron if possible and hair tied back, as it can get STICKY.
Join me and be inspired.
Private workshops are held in Haumoana at Rae's beautiful purpose built Art Studio Space.

Frequently Asked Questions
Will I really get sticky?
Some people get 'Sticky-er' than others, but it is hands on, and the short answer is YES!, so please wear, old clothes and shoes. We supply aprons. If you get the resin on your skin, it is washable off with hot soapy water.
How many people per class?
The classes are small. There is a min of 4 and maximum of 8-10 people depending on the Studio Space. ( Hawke's Bay Studio only takes 6)
How many pieces of artwork will I create?
You will be producing two works of art, each on 38cm disks. We will show you how to gold leaf the base of one of your creations.
What should I wear?
We supply aprons, but please wear clothes you are prepared to get the odd drop of resin on. Old shoes too! Leave your bangles and rings for later. Long hair is best tied back.
What if I'm not very artistic?
I am always AMAZED at what our 'STICKIES' create. The great thing about creating with resin is the results are 'abstract' and their are no rules! Check out our instagram page for examples of what can be achieved.
Will I get to take my artwork home with me?
Due to the fact that ARTRESIN takes 72 hours to become fully cured, we will organise pick up in a few days after the workshop.
Is Resin Toxic?
Some Resin is, but the top quality ARTRESIN brand has been especially formulated to have no VOC's. So we don't need to wear a mask while working with it. Saying that, it is Sticky so if you get it on your skin we recommend washing it off with hot soapy water.
