A unique and exciting casting workshop, where participants will learn the basics of casting with Jesmonite and create a set of two terrazzo coasters of their own design, led by Olivia Aspinall.

Participants will learn the basics of casting with Jesmonite and in the process create a set of two coasters in their own design. The workshop will also help to build confidence for those looking to get started in the craft/design industries. 

The workshop will begin by exploring the basics of casting with Jesmonite: how to create a mix, how to add colour and how to use a mould. After this, the participants will work on their coaster design and Olivia will talk through choosing patterns and colours. Following this, participants will choose their moulds and finally cast the coasters. 

Note - The coasters will need 24 hours to set so will be left at Olivia's studio after the workshop. Olivia will then sand and seal the coasters, before posting them to their new homes and the participants that created them.
