Wood & Resin  NEW

The shine and colour of resin against timber has made it a quickly growing design trend.

Resin is a versatile medium, with the ability to add a range of colour tints, as well as elements such as dried flowers, glitters, shells and stones to make each piece a custom design. You’ll get a choice of projects, including a coffee table, serving boards, a lazy susan and small items such as jewellery and key rings. Try new skills such as making simple jigs and using moulds for pouring resin, simplified joinery techniques, chiselling designs in timber and fine finish sanding. You’ll be taken through using power tools such as drills and drivers, hole saws, orbital sander and grinders. Learn about different glues and fillers and discover the variety of aesthetic looks available for timber and resin finishes.

Sarah Andersen

Sarah Andersen is a furniture designer, making commissioned pieces and doing restorations. She also runs a local gallery with two longtime Camp Creative woodwork tutors, showcasing their work and others from around the region.

"As long as I can remember I’ve enjoyed the creative process – from initial thoughts through to sketches, models, construction – trials and tribulations - and most of all completion. I love that mistakes can often lead to a better result than the original idea - or at the very least it can inspire a new idea or teach a new skill or technique."
