Learn to make your Silicone Mould for your resin, candle making or other projects with our Resin Art short course program courses in Sydney.

We will teach you how you can design and make a silicone mould from scratch that can be used to make unique art pieces over and over again.

In this hands-on workshop, you have the opportunity to create a mould for either a bangle, ring, trinket bowl, small plate or candle holder.
