You’ll create 5 gorgeous resin bangles.
In Beyond the Basics, you’ll work with a slow-curing resin. This gives you time to embed items like flowers in the resin.
Your bangles will take 24 hours to cure and will be ready for collection the next day when you’ll demould them.
Finishing your bangles is done at home using the techniques learned in the Beginners Resin Bangle Class or the technique demonstrated at the end of your class.

- Work safely with resin
- Measure, mix, colour and pour resin
- Create a colour gradient in a resin bangle to showcase silhouetted birds on a telegraph wire

Here’s a couple of other things to know before your resin class:
It’s an advantage to do the Resin Bangle Class prior to booking into Beyond the Basics so that you know how to finish your bangles once they’re cured – you will do the final finishing of these bangles at home. This technique is learned in the Resin Bangle Class.
What to wear/bring
- An old shirt, with long sleeves and an elasticised or button-up cuff (not 3/4 sleeves)
- Wear old clothes that you wouldn’t mind getting messy
- Tie back long hair – resin is sticky!
- Glasses, if you need them for close-up work
Collecting your pieces
The resin used in this class takes 24 hours to cure so you will need to return to collect the pieces. Arrangements can be made on the day. Alternatively, shipping can be arranged.
Don’t just take our word for it, this is what students say!
Beyond the basics bangle workshop.
“Myléne it is an absolute pleasure to be a participant in any of your classes, this one though, it was fabulous. The manner in which you teach is exemplary, talking us through each step along the way, talking us through our errors and answering a myriad of questions with grace and understanding. I highly recommend this class to anyone who has done the basic bangle workshop. New processes learnt and I’ve come away with five bangles each one different. Embedding is fun!
Thank you again Myléne.”
Fun and unique!
