DIY with Holiday Cheer

‘Tis the season to be jolly! SITizens got in the mood for the festive season by creating their own Christmas tree ornaments at the Holiday Resin Ornaments workshop

After a year full of interesting DIY workshops conducted online, the SIT Alumni Leisure Network wrapped up 2021 with the Holiday Resin Ornaments Workshop, conducted by craft studio Room to Imagine. Attended by 52 alumni and held in 2 sessions on 8 and 9 December 2021, the workshop showed alumni how to create their own Christmas ornaments from resin.


In line with the festive season, the participants were provided with silicone moulds in the shape of a bell, a tree or a star. They were then guided on how to prepare their resin mixture and add glitter flakes and powder to create their resin ornaments.

Ms Rebecca Fam, a Physiotherapy alumnus, enjoyed exploring the freedom of the art form. “I’ve worked with resin once before to create an ornamental dish, but this time felt slightly different as I got to use different tools like a torch,” she said. “Taking out the ornaments from the silicon mould was exciting as well.”


Food and Human Nutrition Alumnus Ms Evania Wong enjoyed the fun and festive experience. “The glitter and colours made the resin ornaments look stunningly beautiful,” she said. “I don’t have a Christmas tree as home, so I gave the ornaments to my friend as handmade gifts.”
