DIY Terrazzo Homewares: Drink Coasters

How to make a terrazzo cast



3 hours Class size 1 to 20     label $155


Join us for a three-hour casting workshop, where you learn the basics of casting with eco-friendly materials to create your own terrazzo coaster!

During the workshop, you will design your colour palette, learn how to mix and add pigment to the material, learn how to cast into a silicone mould, and finally how to sand and finish your tiles! This is definitely a calming way to spend an afternoon and you get so much satisfaction once you’re sanding down the tile and start to see the pattern.

By the end of the workshop, you will take home two finished tiles which you can show off to all your loved ones!

Please note: This class requires at least five students to run. In the unlikely event that we don't get this number of students, we'll cancel the class and fully refund you and inform you via email, so please watch your email a few days prior to the class.



Aside from this class, Work-Shop also has the following coming up:



What you'll get

Two finished terrazzo tiles to take home.

What to bring

Be prepared to get a little messy and don’t wear fluted sleeves!

It all started with my own wedding. Wanted to capture all the wonderful bits and pieces of my husband and my relationship in my paper goods, hence, started my journey in calligraphy. Though in the end, I don’t have enough time to make this happen, I realized how much I would love to work with others to bring joy and give the bride a hand. (We all know there is a lot of work to plan a wedding, I have been there.

For weddings, I love doing place cards and addressing envelopes currently obsessed with wax sealing. Besides weddings, I also love seeing my artwork for newborns, anniversary, birthday ideas, special events and things to do for hen’s party.

Love learning new craft and this one was definitely a fun class - mixing colours and creating something cute in a short amount of time. Substitute teacher was friendly and helpful but didn't have full knowledge of the products we were using and was unable to answer all of our questions. Also it was a bit dissapointing that not everyone got to do the shape of coaster they wanted to.

I absolutely recommend this Terrazzo workshop - our teacher was super friendly, and not only taught us the essentials, but helped us exercise some extra creativity and run with our ideas. There was plenty of different materials to work with, and the length of the workshop (as well as the venue) was just right. I can’t wait to practice my newfound Terrazzo skills at home with the help of our take home instructions :)

Great instructor. No pressure. Perfect timeline & not overly hard so easy enough to achieve goals. Looking forward to making more of these when the terrazzo kit is out from them. (@pixiedustland & @pixiedustcalligraphy)

We had a light-hearted, fun afternoon as absolute beginners to terrazzo casting. The teacher was so lovely and helpful, would definitely recommend!

We all made two beautiful Terrazzo coasters. We were provided with clear instructions, aprons and all of the materials we needed. The venue was easy to find and get to. It was great to learn a new skill and an enjoyable craft activity.

Salad C Feb 2020


This is one of the best craft courses I’ve taken. Charlotte is a fantastic teacher and is very supportive throughout the class. Our entire class made such beautiful coasters that we are all very happy with. I highly recommend this course if you’re looking to try something new or explore terrazzo. Two thumbs up.

A fun activity, Charlotte was very patient and helped out when I got stuck. Pretty happy with my new Terrazzo Coasters. Made two monotones color combo.
