What is resin?
Resin is a plant-derived component that when mixed, causes a reaction that makes it appear like clear plastic.
Is resin toxic?
Generally, epoxy resins are considered non-toxic. However, direct contact with skin for long periods of time can cause skin sensitivity and reactions. Epoxy resin itself is not volatile, so there are no risks regarding inhalation; although the curing agent usually has a pungent odour that may cause temporary respiratory irritation. Therefore, it is important to wear your work gloves and work in a well-ventilated area to prevent any ill-effects.
Is resin safe for food contact?
Once the resin is fully cured and hardened, it is safe for food contact. We recommend placing your light snacks or dried ingredients onto your resin crafts. Note that food preparation methods such as using your resin craft as a chopping board or any scratching / scraping are not recommended.
How long is the curing process?
Our epoxy resin takes about 6 - 24 hours to cure. Leave your finished products overnight for them to fully cure before touching them.
Do I get to bring my resin art back after the workshop?
You will not be able to bring your work back on the day itself as resin takes 6 - 24 hours to fully cure. After your session, it would be left to fully cure at our studio before you can choose to self-collect on another day, or opt for our delivery option. For workshops outside of our studio, you can leave your resin craft at the workshop venue to self-collect on another day.
Do I need any prior knowledge to attend the resin art workshop?
No prior knowledge or experience is required for any EPIC Workshops! Our resin art workshops are suitable for beginners and our skilled facilitators will bring you through the process of creating your resin craft step-by-step. Not only would it be an enriching and fulfilling experience for you, but you also get to keep and admire your artwork after the workshop.

What age groups are suitable for the resin art workshop?
The resin art workshop is great for teenagers and adults. Working with resin requires the use of fine motor skills and patience, so the resin art workshop is generally not as suitable for young children.
What's the maximum number of participants for the resin art workshop?
Our studio workshop can hold up to 50 participants for the resin art workshop. Due to Covid-19 restrictions, our studio's current maximum limit is 25 participants. For groups larger than 25, there are two options. 1. You can choose to book your own venue with a larger maximum capacity and our facilitators can travel to your location. 2. You can book a virtual resin art workshop instead for an unlimited number of participants.
How does the virtual resin art workshop work?
For virtual resin art workshops, all the materials you need would be packed and delivered to you in an individual kit before the day of the virtual workshop. Our facilitators would then be conducting the workshop over Zoom, Microsoft Teams or any other online platform of your choice, and you and all of the other participants can enjoy a fun resin art session from the comfort of your own homes.
