Our Teachers

Elaine Tan

 

Elaine is the founder of Resin Play and the designer of resin jewellery brands, Amado Gudek, Alfie de Meow and Analog Cufflinks. Elaine has 12 years of experience in jewellery making and 8 years of experience in working with resin.

Elaine enjoys learning all about jewellery and has attended courses in metal smithing, glass jewellery, acrylic jewellery, metal clay jewellery and 3D jewellery design over the past decade. It was not until the summer of 2010, during a contemporary jewellery course at Central St Martins, that she discovered her love for resin. Since then, she has never stopped experimenting with this versatile medium. 

Elaine has a masters in Brand Management (Istituto Marangoni) and a degree in Fashion Marketing and Management (Raffles Design Institute), which come in handy in running her business!

Elaine focuses on creating new workshops and teaches the intermediate and advanced workshops. All teachers are trained under Elaine.

Rachel Oon

Rachel is a Singaporean artist with a Bachelor of Visual Arts in New Zealand (Dunedin School of Art) and a Bachelor of Arts in Psychology and Sociology (University at Buffalo, New York).

She has exhibited regularly in group and solo exhibitions and has won awards for watercolour and sculpture. With 10 years experience in watercolour and acrylic painting, Rachel believes art is a mix of technique, experimentation and spontaneity.

She enjoys working with resin due to its expressive nature and unpredictability. An intriguing medium with endless possibilities, she loves how it creates the opportunity to experiment with various colour combinations and techniques while allowing it to take on a fascinating life of its own.

Jayne Lim

A Theatre Studies graduate from the National University of Singapore, Jayne’s hobby is collecting more hobbies, particularly those with a creative aspect. She especially enjoys exploring and combining different mediums of expression.

Over the years, Jayne has added modern calligraphy, watercolour painting, photography and a diploma in make-up artistry to her initial skills of colouring with crayons and trying not to draw on the walls (finally mastered at age 4).

Her journey with resin began with a jewellery-making workshop with Elaine in 2014, where she fell in love with the myriad artistic and practical possibilities of resin; she now looks forward to sharing this enthusiasm with you!
