  • Exploring the use of colour pigments with resin
  • Creating 1-part moulds for resin casting with found or hand sculpted objects
  • Finishing processes including sanding and polishing
  • Students create a number of small-scale objects suitable for various different jewellery applications. These are based on multi-purpose shapes such as disks, triangles, half-moons and bangles created from moulds supplied for students during class.
  • Students also learn how to use and createsilicone moulds based on their own designs from found objects they can take home at the end of class.

This class is delivered by Sarah and Stacey from Flock Curiosity Assembly, a creative jewellery partnership of Sarah Byrne and Stacey Rutigliano formed in 2009.

Sarah and Stacey are inspired by a mutual love of unusual and unconventional colour combinations in the form of edgy statement designs for everyday and every event wear. Every piece is designed, sculpted, cast and finished by Flock Curiosity Assembly in their home-based Melbourne studios.

Please feel free to bring materials to embed into resin, such as fabrics, decorated paper or magazine pages, coloured thread, ribbon, shells, dried plant material and small plastic parts. Avoid sharp metallic parts. Please note that glass objects cannot readily be reproduced. 

For safety, please wear covered-toe shoes (no sandals) and bring an apron or shirt to protect your clothes. Long hair must be tied back and please do not wear any loose or dangling jewellery.

Students who are pregnant, or have skin or respiratory allergies, or who are sensitive to paints or chemicals are recommended to buy respirator masks equipped with charcoal filters for organic solvents. CAE can supply P2 safety masks to all other students.
