In the Common Room with Stella and Olive Design


This is an introductory class for those who ever wanted to learn the ins and out of resin art. You will be able to see an example piece of resin art created and then be guided through different techniques for creating your own unique piece on a 50cm round board.

What you will learn-

- Safety whilst working with resin.
- The process of creating your own custom colour palette with a number of different inks, pigments and paints. 
- Hints and tips from an experienced resin artist on how to create your own piece but also how to recover from common mistakes      with resin.

What you will take home –

- Notes on safety, techniques and process that will support what you learnt in class which will enable you to create your own art at home.
- Supplier list and what you need to get started.
- Your own piece of resin art mailed to you 7 days after the class to enable it enough time to cure.

Note: this class is not suitable for children or pregnant women due to the chemicals used.






Pocket City Farms is a productive hub the local community can gather to learn about all things farming and food growing, buy local produce grown with organic principles, participate in the volunteer program, and take part in many workshops and events.

In the surrounds of their productive green space in the city Pocket City Farms run regular workshops across a range of sustainable lifestyle topics from growing food in small spaces to native stingless beekeeping, and wooden spoon carving to natural indigo dyeing.

They hold monthly crop swaps with Crop Swap Sydney for trading home harvests, as well as weekly volunteer sessions enabling you to dig your hands in the soil and learn food growing skills direct from the farmer. Meanwhile you can also take a yoga class outdoors overlooking the farm, or bring the kids along for a Little Farmers session.

The produce from their ecological market garden is available each week at the Pocket City Farm Store, along with other goods from local producers, including organic sourdough and local tea.
