Terrazzo (eco-resin) Homewares WorkshopMade By Me Workshop
Take your homewares up a notch with an on trend terrazzo piece made by you from Jesmonite!
We are so in love with terrazzo that we couldn't decide which shape to offer in this workshop so the choice is yours! You can make a terrazzo pot, an oval trinket tray, a round tray, a pair of square coasters or a combination of 2 of these options!
In this workshop we will guide you through all the steps to make your chosen Jesmonite homeware item. Jesmonite is a gypsum and acrylic based material, which is solvent-free and has no VOC's and is often called an eco resin.
What you'll learn:
- Learn how to mix and add colours to the Jesmonite to create your own choice of colour palette (don't worry we will have lots of colour inspiration for you to work with)
- Create your coloured chips (maximum of 3 colours) that will go into your terrazzo mix
- Cast the materials into a silicon mould for your chosen shape
- Once your piece is cured we will show you how to sand and seal them and send you home with all the sandpaper you need to finish the job!
We'll have some refreshments for you to enjoy (or you can grab a coffee from one of the local cafes) while we take you through the finishing process.
Please note the square coaster will have a flat surface not a lip like the featured photograph.

You will need to enter through the general store and then head upstairs to our studio, we will meet you out the front to check you in and escort you upstairs.
What you'll need to bring:
You may want to bring along any colour inspiration you or terrazzo references you have, we will have some on hand but since there are limitless possibilities it is a good idea to know what you like! And a bag to carry your work home.
We provide everything you need for the workshop including an apron to protect your clothes but it can get a bit messy so don't dress to impress.
Perfect for beginners with no previous experience or skills required. All that you need is an open mind and a sense of adventure.
We believe craft is as much about creativity as it is about connection, in our workshops you have the opportunity to meet new friends, share a few stories, laugh with each other and simply enjoy some time out for yourself. Class sizes are always kept small so that participants will enjoy hands on assistance while you learn and create.
Jesmonite is considered safe by most experts. Its lightweight form does not emit toxic fumes, and there are no documented health risks associated with Jesmonite, we recommend pregnant women check with their health care professional before working with any chemicals.
Please note if you choose to make more than 1 piece (limited to a maximum of 2) you will need to make these from the same colour selection, unfortunately there is not enough time or space in this workshop to make multiple colour options.
