Resin is a two part chemical with strong fumes, Due to potential health dangers all workshop participants are supplied with gloves, aprons and instruction on how to safely heat and manipulate the resin. Correct and safe use of heat torches (up to 600 degree) and butane burners (open flame).

Due to the safety precautions, I do not recommend this workshop for pregnant women and any participant under 18 years of age and children are not permitted in the studio whilst resin is being used/heated.

Anyone entering the resin studio must be wearing PPE and in turn be registered and booked into the workshop.

Please Note.
A full demonstration of your project will explain the products, project and methodology by your teacher before you start your own masterpiece. The working time of resin is 30-40 minutes before the curing process starts, so working quickly and following instructions is required. Class time is 1.5 - 2 hours and may fluctuate depending on class size and time taken to choose colours etc.

Equine & pet portrait, seascape, abstract & Resin Artist.

After excelling in Art at Mercedes College, I was accepted to Edith Cowan University studying Visual Arts. And later Business & Professional Accounting at Curtin University. After a 20-year career working and Studying in Book Keeping & Accounting until 2016, I began painting again and realised where my passion was.

The opportunity arose in December 2018 to open a Children's Art Studio, I have been working to create and develop a Fun and Comprehensive Curriculum to teach a wide range of skills and mediums to children whilst teaching correct technique in a manner that can be adapted to different skill levels.

Working from my East Victoria Park studio, I teach Childrens Art and run a School Holiday Program for Children and Resin Art & Other Fluid & Abstract workshops for Adults.

I have been working with Resin for 3 years and have exhibited some of my large scale Seascapes in December 2020 & sold many pieces to Western Australian clients & Galleries.

I like to teach children a wide range of mediums including Drawing, Clay, Acrylic, pastel and Oil Paints, I generally work in Pastels for custom portraits and Oils for my more contemporary style painting.

Specialising in original commissioned Custom portrait paintings and more contemporary stylistic, colourful works. I had always been an animal lover and have always been drawn to horses. Over the past 5 years I have worked hard to develop my own style of Equine Art.

Melissa Harty Jun 2022

The instructions were clear and the support was great right from the moment I arrived. Now i just need to find an excuse to show off my master piece!

Loraine Forsyth Jun 2022

We were rather disappointed as the whole evening seemed rushed and the class did not run for the allotted two hours.
There were only 3 of us booked in for the class but feel the tutor was distracted and did not give us the tuition we needed.

Megan Adair Jun 2022

Given there were only three of us in the class I would have liked a bit more tuition. I like what I achieved but think it could have been better.

Reply from this teacher:

I’m sorry that you felt this way.

My classes are always started up with a full
Demonstration to take you through the project step by step, explaining the process, the products and my methodology.

Resin is a process that needs Concentration and due to the 30-40 Minute working time, it must be done quickly following instructions.
Having only three people in the class is quite rare, my minimum class is 4. I did check back in April when you attended I taught 20 people on that day over 3 classes.

I apologise if you felt you didn’t get enough instruction. After the demo, I have to spend my time with all of the students and some need more Assistance or ask more questions, so I am Sorry if you felt you didn’t get enough tuition from this class.

Raylene Driver Apr 2022

I went with my sin and my best friend we choose the cheese board package and did 2 extra coasters.

I loved everything that I have learnt, instructions were clearly presented and support we provided each step of the way.

I felt it was priced accordingly and were welcomed with and cheese and crackers, with water also provided.

I will be going back to do a clock and also invite work colleagues to do.

Annetjie Loots Apr 2022

Teacher was friendly and supportive. Aprons was a bit dirty and the resources needs to be explained as the students do not know what effect each colour mix will give. Thoroughly enjoyed the trial and error exploration. Needs a little bit more info on the names of resin suppliers and dyes to use.

Kymberley Willshire Apr 2022

A great evening being creative. Steps were broken down and demonstrated. Environment was relaxed and fun. Would highly recommend and go again.

Scott Davies Dec 2021

It was nice having snacks. Gave us the basics in how to manipulate resin and apply it.

Georgette Cox Dec 2021

The class itself was great and lots of fun! Shannan was a good teacher and explained things really clearly, however when I had the idea to pour in a way that would later allow me to turn my cheeseboard into a clock (vertical - with a tassel hanging off the end through the finger hole - my room is asian themed) she wasunimpressed. Turns out that she runs clock resin pouring classes for $195-$255 and I don't think she liked the idea of me doing the 'cheaper' class and getting a similar result to her pricier class. She is also not very generous with her supplies. She gives you enough to get the job done - just. Several people in my class got a little excited and used a little too much resin on their cheeseboards so they couldn't quite do their coasters. Rather than providing them with a few more ml of resin (literally all it would take) other participants had to give some of their resin away so that everyone could complete their projects. While that was done in good humour on everyone's part and I know the supplies are expensive I couldn't help but think there that I would never put paying customers in that situation. All that being said, it was still a fabulous class, we had fun and were very happy with the results. If you want to learn how to make these or want to give a unique gift to someone I absolutely recommend the class!

Reply from this teacher:

I’m sorry that this was your experience.

The other 6 participants in the workshop did not have any negative feedback.

In future if you are interested in doing a project that is not specified in the brief then it may pay to reach out in advance. In a class of 8 participants and myself I measure and prepour all of the resin prior to the beginning of the workshop. So assuming that extra resin will be available is not always possible especially in a busy class.

As per the manufacturers recommendations Resin is poured at around 3mm coverage for best results therefore the amount required is calculated on what is required per project. Your cheeseboard used 120ml. Which is exactly the measured amount based on covering a 30 x 20 cm area. Other members of your workshop upgraded to extra coasters which included extra resin trial 150 ml, others also upgraded to jarrah. Many options are available to upgrade for my workshops. 40 cm Clocks use 300ml of resin and the 60cm clock 500ml of resin. Calculated by the manufacturers art calculator which you will find on there website

Yes the materials are expensive and in 3 years teaching and over 5 years working with resin I have not had these complaints before.

Shannan was so super lovely and nice. Her studio is absolutely gorgeous and has so much of her artwork out, which proved super helpful in choosing your colours and patterns to use. She was very knowledgeable of her work and was very good at making sure everybody was comfortable. It was a perfect amount of time too. I’m so excited to pick up my cheeseboard and coasters later. We had a really fun group too which was awesome.
