Terrazzo Coasters: Level 1 Terrazzo Workshop

Admission £40
Start Time 09:00
End Time 13:00

Love terrazzo? Learn the technique whilst making your own coaster set!

During this session, you will learn how to make a pair terrazzo-pattern coasters using an eco-resin material called Jesmonite.

In recent years, Jesmonite has become the go-to material for designers and artists looking for an environmentally conscious alternative to traditional resin based products. Originally used in the construction industry, Jesmonite is an acrylic-modified gypsum (plaster) composite that offers an eco-friendly and safe alternative to fibreglass, and provides a lightweight substitute to concrete.

The workshop will last approximately 3.5 hours, during which you will create your own terrazzo coasters. You will have the choice to make a pair of round or square coasters with your choice of unique colours that matches your styles and/or the colours of your interior.

The session will be broken down in 3 parts with a 30 minutes break in between each, which will allow your creations to dry as well as provide us with the opportunity for a short natter over a coffee.

Aurélie, their resident terrazzo extraordinaire and founder of Aura Living will teach you all there is to know about this eco-resin material, its different applications, and show you some other homeware accessory examples we have been making using this great material. She will also show you how to achieve any colour chips and/or base you wish to make using primary colour pigments.

A little more about Aurélie…

“With a working background as an interior designer, I began my journey with traditional ceramic making about 4 years ago. Unfortunately, during the first lockdown, I was no longer able to access the pottery studio which made me research other crafts and activities I could practice from home.

I discovered the world of eco-resin and its endless possibilities when I purchased a DIY kit to try it for myself. I fell in love with the process, the ease of use and little requirement for specialised equipment or space, while allowing you to create hardwearing homeware accessories using a wide range of techniques, including my most favourite; terrazzo!.

As a designer, my imagination exploded with the prospect of all the ideas I could materialise using this material. I am now so excited to be sharing my knowledge of this product for you to discover and try out a new craft skill.”

A note about the class:-

The class may not be suitable for people who have any wrist problems as there is quite a lot of sanding involved in the process.

Wear comfortable clothing that you don’t mind getting a bit of water splashed. The paint used will wash off, but avoid wearing your best clothes!
