It’s super easy and quick to work with, so you will be able to take your dish home with you on the same day.
    During the workshop, you will:
    Learn how to create your own terrazzo chips in your chosen colours
    Measure, mix and cast your own oval tray with your terrazzo mix
    Sand your piece to reveal your gorgeous terrazzo design.
    You will also receive some concrete wax and a bamboo cloth to take home so that you can seal and shine your piece the following day.
    You don’t need to bring anything with you as all materials, tools and products will be supplied (please note, Jesmonite can be a messy craft so don’t wear your best clobber).
