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 new workshop so the choice is yours! You can make a terrazzo pot, an oval tray, a round tray or a pair of square coasters!
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 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 sand and seal them so that you can take them home with you on the day!
We will take a short break while we wait for your piece to cure, 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.
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!
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.
