Welcome to #Resin8
Congratulations on finding us! You can now experience that ‘kid in a sweet shop’ feeling again and again when you buy from Resin8. With everything that you could possibly want for your #resin art and craft projects, you have now entered the wonderful world of #Resin8. We’re your award-winning go-to supplier of crystal clear epoxy resin, colour pigments, mica powders, silicone moulds, tools and accessories.
If you’ve ever stumbled your way, slightly confused, through other resin craft supplies websites, then you’ll wonder how you’ve ever done without us. We can confidently state that you can always find what you’re looking for, from bezels to resins and from sparkles to findings. And if for some reason you’re that one in a thousand who wants that totally quirky, way-out colour pigment, bezel or mica powder, then we’ll do our very best to help you achieve your dream…
Super reliable, super friendly and really ethically-minded, we’re a one-stop (online) shop with a difference. Yes, we’re based in the Cotswolds but we ship worldwide - Alaska, Ukraine, Guam, Malta, the list goes on…
We share, we surprise, we absolutely LOVE everything about resin. We’re part of a rapidly growing resin craft community (and yes, we're one of the originals, having been in business for well over 20 years and having a whopping combined 50 years experience in working with resin) so do follow us on Insta, Facebook and Youtube for daily updates on all things wonderfully resin-y - you’ll discover tips, tricks, help and support about anything you can think of to make with resin.
Whatever your level of skill - hesitant beginner, increasingly confident resin dabbler or full-on professional - you may also want a little support in your resin journey so why not attend a class with us in the Cotswolds? From resin art and dirty pours to making jewellery and casting resin gems, we can teach you the skills you need to work with epoxy resin.
It’s time to start getting excited about opening your next #Resin8 parcel…
Meet the Resin8 team!
Kate (Super Boss Lady / CEO / Managing Director / El Jefe) - Kate is the brains behind our Resin8 brand. Kate is passionate about the quality of our products, the thought that goes into our processes and the excellence of our customer service. Leading from the front, Kate is hands on with our ever-growing and ever more exciting range of products, inspiring Resin8ers across the world. Likened to Wonder Woman herself, Kate works super hard to ensure that she can provide for her team and tries her utmost to make Resin8 a fun, friendly workplace.
Josh (Creative Director) - What can we say about Josh? A super-talented guy with a drawing on his face, Josh makes everything look gorgeous. Outside of work Josh likes to sing, spend time with his partner and two boys and has his own luxury clothing brand.
Dan (General Manager) - Ex-forces Dan joined us in February 2021 and oversees the day-to-day running of our business and staff, working closely with Kate. He runs the Resin8 bootcamp twice a week and spends his spare time making amazing hand-drawn artworks, getting more tattoos and climbing.
Ellie (New Business Manager) - Ellie joined the team in November 2017 and works alongside Kate. She is never seen without a cup of tea and biscuit in hand, likes to weave in her spare time, and has a bit of a thing for RuPaul's drag race.
Steve (Production Manager) - Steve is the latest addition to our team and joins us from a coffin-making business... He has a wicked sense of humour, gets excited by lean methodology, is just about to move into a houseboat and is Tom's dad!
Jack (Operations Manager) - Jack heads up our ever-expanding warehouse and despatch team, when he's not scouting locations for Midsomer Murders that is. He has a beautiful son Jasper and is one of the newest members of our team (although Kate worked with him, and Andrew, way back in 2012).
Lou (Teacher) - Lou is our ultimate resin guru, delivers our resin workshops, manages our popular Resin8ers facebook group and responds to many of our social media enquiries and emails. Obsessed with aurora dust, Princess Lou is a dab hand at turning mica powder into watercolour paints and can often be found mulling late into the evening.
Andreea - Resin artist Andreea works in our creative team designing and making gorgeous pieces for photography and kits. She works closely with Josh, Kate, Katie (makers assistant) Tom (photographer) and Elliot (videographer).
Phil, Sheena, Andrew, Phoebe are our operations heroes. Like Santa's very own elves they scurry quietly around the office with tape guns, under Phil's guidance, and are known to hoard packing peanuts. Sheena, aka warehouse princess, deserves a special mention - cake maker and shelf organiser extraordinnaire, Sheena joined us in 2019. She runs our warehouse with a fist of iron (covered in glitter) making sure that everything is in the right place, in stock and looking tidy for when we have real live customers in the building! Sheena also picks most of your orders and likes to give a free gift or two!
Kassie, Amy, Fin, Grace, Jess & Tiggy make up our production team. Headed up by Kassie, they work tirelessly making kits up, bagging moulds and weighing out pigment, resin and all things sparkly. A fun mixture of young mums, students and full-timers, our Production Heroes are known to "rock out" to Disney songs, participate in Resin8 bake-offs and try and avoid the Resin8 yoga sessions. Amy deserves a special mention - she joined us just before Black Friday 2018. If you buy something from us, Amy will probably have been involved in hand-bottling or potting items in your order. Amy is our mica queen and is often seen with a tropical temptations nose. She also makes amazing biscuits cakes for the team. Amy is camera-shy (a bit like Kate) so won't often be seen on our social media feed.
Gareth and Sarah N are our office angels. Working in digital content creation, website management and keeping the management sane, they are an essential part of our team - without them we would be floundering in an unorganised heap of biodegradable plastic bags. You may well find yourself in conversation with one of them on email or social!
A special mention goes to Hannah who help us out when she's back from uni for a bit of extra spending money. Paul (aka the husband) should also get a mention for re-building the warehouse every few weeks, putting up yet another desk and being drafted in to pack orders when we're super busy.
Clare John (Founder) - CJ Resins (as it was then known) was founded by Clare John, a trained silversmith who has been making jewellery for over 40 years. Clare first used resin for jewellery making in the 1970s and has been teaching and demonstrating resin techniques since 2004. Now a grandmother, Clare spends her time enjoying her well-earned retirement with her husband Rob (when he isn't sorting our recycling).
