Several weeks ago, I spent a day with Renault and celebrated personalisation with the new Renault Captur. We took part in a resin jewellery-making workshop with Nadine from Own Sweet Time. Let me tell you, this is not the first time that I have attempted to make resin anything – but I am not going to pretend to be an expert. My first attempt was memorably in a year seven woodwork class and I can guarantee you it was a giant disaster.

Knowing that I was going to be chauffeured to the event by the Renault team, I was thinking this car better be monochrome (for selfish reasons and maybe for Instagram too) and lo and behold, here is a black and white car to pick me up. That was probably the best thing about the Captur, the ability to personalise your own car to your own personal style. After being driven to Workshop in the Captur, we were walked through the process of mixing different solutions to mixing colours and making sure that the resin is set properly. Once it was our turn, I naturally gravitated towards black, white and marble everything. Even though I am not a resin jewellery wearer, going through the process of making your own really makes you appreciate the process and work that goes into it (see: endless sanding and polishing). I’m actually really tempted to make my own resin homeware now if I ever get the spare moment.
