This workshop guides you through the process of designing, moulding and making your very own Terrazzo coasters.

About this event

In this workshop, you will create two bespoke Jesmonite terrazzo coasters whilst learning about the other uses of Jesmonite material. You will be using Jesomnite AC100 which is a water-based, eco-resin used widely in mould.

Whilst experimenting with a design that's individual to you, this workshop will show you how to mix the Jesmonite material and how to cast it into silicone moulds. Your finished design will then be sent off to be sanded by Katie and will be sent to you in the following week.

Limited spaces are available for this workshop.

About the organisers:

Katie Gillies is a surface and product designer from Nottingham, England. She set up her studio in her parents' garage back in 2015 and began delivering both personal design projects and commissioned work for clients.

Katie is passionate about slow design and her studio is underpinned by this ideology: Slow design focuses on the materials, the origin of a piece and how it’s made, taking the environment and sustainability into account. This movement is becoming more mainstream and many small businesses are focusing on these types of practices to not only protect the planet but also to create more meaningful products.
