Kay Carter Creative Casting Workshop (Terrazzo Pot)
A terrazzo pot casting workshop hosted by Kay Carter at Common Fiction, 85 Howard St, North Shields NE30 1AF)
During this workshop you will be guided through making your very own bespoke terrazzo 8cm x 8cm pot . We will be using Jesmonite AC100 which is a gypsum mineral & water based acrylic liquid casting material. It is solvent-free with no VOC's and is sustainable & environmentally friendly.
I will talk you through and demonstrate how to mix the Jesmonite casting material as well as combining the pigments to allow you to create your custom colours. You are the designer here, you can experiment, play with colours as well as the size of your terrazzo chip patterns!
Once you have made your terrazzo colour chips I will show you how to cast these into your silicone pot moulds.
We will then take a refreshment break while the Jesmonite cures and drys. Refreshments, fruit & snacks will be provided. During this time I will be on hand to answer any questions you have :)
From here you will un-mould, sand and finnish your pots. You will leave with your finised creations on the day!
Finished pot is approx 8cm x 8cm - perfect for plants, makeup brushes, stationary & so much more!
Suitable for beginners.
The workshop can run over 3 hours slightly, so please allow for added time.
