Create your own bespoke Jesmonite Door Numbers with Designer-Makers May Wild Studio.

About this Event

Make your own bespoke Jesmonite door number with Designer-Makers May Wild Studio. In this workshop you will learn about the material Jesmonite, mix and cast your own personal numbers (2 numbers) experimenting with colour, decoration and surface to create your own unique outcome.

A 2.5 hour workshop in which participants make their own Jesmonite numbers for interior or exterior design use, mixing and casting Jesmonite an environmentally friendly acrylic and resin-based material which is solvent and VOC's free.

We have carefully selected a current modern number typeface and we will make your individual number moulds before the workshop.

You will be guided through each step of the making process with demonstrations and finished examples by May Wild Studio. You will then mix and cast the Jesmonite material, an opportunity to discover the unique qualities of Jesmonite through play and experimentation, exploring a range of decorative colour, pattern and textures to create your own unique design.

During the setting period there will be a break for refreshments and also an opportunity for conversation with May Wild Studio about their design practice, the number casting workshop and the material Jesmonite. You will then remove your numbers from their mould to reveal your unique outcome.

May Wild Studio will take the outcomes back to their studio for a final sand and apply a finish coat suitable for external use, we will also pre-drill on request ready for collection from Object Style a minimum of 1 week later.

*Please provide details of your chosen numbers on booking (email hello@maywildstudio.com). Min 2 weeks prior to workshop date.

Testimonial:

'A perfect Sunday spent at @object_style with @maywildstudio learning all things Jesmonite - Exploring colour, Playing with texture and Creating a beautiful and functional contemporary door number! It’s not often that I come away from a workshop with an outcome that I really LOVE - usually it’s enough to learn a new skill, enjoy the process and do something out of our day to day. HOWEVER, today I experienced a workshop that was insightful, fun, experimental and meticulously designed so that every single participant left with a stunning end product. Keep a look out for future workshops by @maywildstudio ... they really are a wonderful duo! ' Winter & Kurth
