About the event
Jesmonite Plant Pot Workshop Terrazzo/Marbling
Sunday 28th April 2024
WHAT IS JESMONITE?
Jesmonite is a non-toxic, eco-friendly, water-based resin used to create many kinds of decorative homeware, art, furniture & more! It comes as a two part separated mix of powder & liquid which at 1-2.5 ratio is mixed together to form a milky mixture. Naturally Jesmonite has an off white colour to it, so coloured pigments are used to give tone & hue to the mixture which is then poured into silicone moulds, where it cures & becomes a beautifully, unique item!
WHAT ARE WE GOING TO BE DOING?
In this 3-hour (half an hour break after the first 2 hours) workshop you will be taught step by step, with demonstrations how to create a Terrazzo/Marbled/Block Colour Jesmonite Plant Pot - dimensions 12cm height, 15cm width, 10cm depth. We will be practicing on a variety of smaller moulds (including mini pots & coasters) before the plant pot, so you can get a good understanding of how your product will look/the material works. All materials for each process are provided so you don't have to bring anything other than yourself & potentially an apron/large shirt if you want to keep your clothes clean - Jesmonite washes out in the washing machine but it can be a messy process & if you have plans after the work shop you may want to avoid the temporary marks! Best of all, because Jesmonite is quick to set, you will be able to take your creations home with you at the end of the workshop!
- Easy step by step guidance to make your own items - materials are all provided.
- Add your personal touch and creativity using various colours.
- Take your creations home at the end of the session, keep for yourself or give it to someone special.
- Group size max 9 people.
- Jesmonite kits will be available to purchase at the workshops for any attendees who may want to continue their experimentation or give the kit as a gift to someone!
