Terrazzo Coaster Making Workshop

“You’re doing what with chorizo?”

“No, no. Nothing about chorizo… …Terrazzo.”

Join us and learn how to cast Terrazzo effect coasters.

Design your colour palette, then learn how to mix and add pigment making the chips to cast into the mixture. Finally you will sand and finish your coaster, producing two coasters to take home with you.

Terrazzo is a composite material made up of chips of (usually) marble, glass or other minerals, suspended in a binding material. It’s been around since the 18th century in Italy and is most commonly used in flooring, tiles and worktops.

This Terrazzo workshop is perfect introduction for those looking to try out a new skill.
