Pack your bags, you’re going on a trip! Well not really, but it feels that way when you’re preparing for an upcoming resin workshop. You’ll want to bring fabric, thread, needles, and scissors just in case they are needed for the project you choose. If it’s hard to find supplies where you live or if there is something specific that you need then pack accordingly. Remember this isn’t vacation so don’t forget anything.
What you need to know before coming into a resin workshop
First and foremost, you should pack your supplies. This includes things like fabric, thread, needles, and scissors. You’ll also want to bring a sketchbook and pencils if possible. If you’re expecting to have a hard time finding supplies for the project you have in mind, try going to an art supply store or even a craft store as these stores may as well be found in other places; however, always remember that what you find will depend on where you live.
Resin is a pretty messy material so it’s probably best to wear an old shirt, one that you don’t mind getting dirty. Also, if possible try wearing closed-toe shoes.
When working with resin, you should always have safety goggles on! This will protect your eyes from any harmful particles that may fly into them. Resin can sometimes be a bit tricky to work with as far as finding the right equipment goes. You should go to a hardware store if you’re having trouble finding things, they have most of what you’ll need there.
In addition, always remember that resin is flammable so don’t wear anything that could catch on fire or something. For example, don’t wear things like nylon and polyester as they’re very flammable and can easily catch on fire.
Tips and tricks for succeeding in this class
I have a few suggestions for you that may help you to succeed in this class. First, try to go to the first session of each day. It will help you get all of your announcements out of the way and help you organize your thoughts on how to deal with this class. Then, pay attention to what’s happening in the class by listening to what professors are saying and taking notes if possible. For homework, do it as soon as possible so that you don’t forget it. Finally, be on time for classes along with doing any coursework or readings on time so that you can stay up on current assignments.
Now that you know what to expect, I highly recommend packing your supplies before coming into a resin workshop. First things first, be sure to bring any sketchbooks and pencils needed for the class. Also, remember to pack different kinds of scissors as well as thread and fabric! You’ll want these items on hand so that you can work on your projects when you get home from class. Finally, don’t forget to bring all of the coursework that’s been assigned up until this point in case you have a lot that needs to be done.
How to get the most out of your experience
Bring a sketchbook and pencils if possible. You’ll also want to bring fabric, thread, needles, and scissors as well as any additional supplies for your project. It can be helpful to have an idea of what you want to create so that you have everything ready.
In the event that you were not sure whether or not your procrastination was caused by a rational or irrational belief, here are few things you could do: Keep working on changing your behaviours to see if there are any changes in your procrastination. Keep trying different things until you find something that works. If it seems like the root of your procrastination is coming from a rational place, then try making a list of all the tasks you have to do and a list of the tasks you want to do. Start with what you need to do first and try doing those things before what you want to do until your motivation for those other things starts to increase.
If, after these experiments, your desire for delaying things is still there then it may be that the root of your procrastination is coming from an irrational belief. For this, you can try challenging the beliefs you have. Keep a list of your thoughts and go over them until you find that they are making sense. You might want to talk to someone else about these thoughts as well so that they can give you feedback on whether or not your beliefs are rational. It might be helpful, too, to keep a record of your thoughts in order to see if you are having the same types of thoughts over and over again.
For those of you who are interested in taking a workshop, it’s important to prepare by packing your supplies beforehand so that when the day arrives, you can focus on learning. Don’t forget to pack fabric for any projects where this is called for and bring along some sketch pads or notebooks too if possible. If you live somewhere other than an art supply store, make sure to go there before coming into the class because what will be available may vary depending on where you live!
