Let's talk concrete. Spanning a time frame of about 5000 years, this tried and tested method for making stuff is an incredibly versatile material. The catch? Jumping into the world of concrete can be hard. You gotta know what you're doing. Lucky for you, we have a total pro to guide you through the whole process.

In this three hour workshop with our resident concrete queen, Cathy from Concretefetti, you'll learn everything you need to know about creating beautiful bespoke homewares using concrete.

We'll start by covering the basics. What concrete actually is, and a brief rundown on the history of terrazzo, safety, and materials required.

Then it's time to get making. We'll cover safety, materials, design, fun colour options, and discuss various materials you can use for different terrazzo finishes, not to mention some industry secrets and helpful tips from Cathy.

After planning your pieces and choosing your terrazzo materials, you'll have the skills to mix, pour and apply your design finishes. Once you've poured, it's time to step away for curing. This process takes approximately 24 hours, so your pieces will stay at Work-Shop for a sleepover and will be available from the following day onwards for collection.

Next, we'll cover sanding, an important step, but one that is only possible when the concrete has cured. You'll be provided with a premade terrazzo coaster to take home on the day made by Cathy to practice this final crucial step. You'll also be provided with the materials to finish sanding your own creation at home after the class.

Cement your knowledge in concrete and terrazzo and leave with the confidence and skills to continue making one of a kind, timeless pieces forevermore.

Important disclaimer: This workshop is not suitable for asthmatics or people with respiratory conditions

Please note: Public dates for this class require at least 5 guests to run. In the unlikely event that we don't reach this number, we'll cancel the class; in this case we'll inform you and allow you to get a refund or reschedule, so please watch your email/SMS one day prior to the class.



What you'll get
  • All materials provided, including cement powder, moulds, terrazzo chips, colour pigments, sandpaper and safety equipment.
  • A concrete terrazzo trinket tray handmade by you!
  • A concrete pre-made concrete terrazzo coaster.
What to bring
Please wear old clothes and closed toes shoes.
