Love terrazzo? Learn the technique whilst making your own coaster set!

Terrazzo Coaster Workshop

During this session, you will learn how to make your own terrazzo coasters! You will have the option to make a pair of round or square coasters and we will teach you how to achieve any colour terrazzo chips and/or coaster base you want. At the end of the session, your coasters will be ready to take home.

The workshop will be running for approximately 3 hours and will be broken down in 3 parts with a 30 minutes break in between each, which will allow your creations to dry as well as provide us with the opportunity for a short natter over some complimentary refreshments.

Our new evening session includes a glass of wine (or a beer or a soft drink if you prefer) on arrival, as well as a few snacks to share during the breaks. A small on-site bar will be available to purchase more drinks should you wish to.

Aurélie, our resident terrazzo extraordinaire and founder of Aura Living, will teach you all there is to know about eco-resin material, its different applications, and show you some other homeware accessory examples she has been making using this great material.

A little more about Aurélie:

“With a working background as an interior designer, I began my journey with ceramics about 4 years ago. Unfortunately, during the first lockdown, I was no longer able to access the pottery studio which made me research other crafts and activities I could practice from home. This is when I discovered the world of Jesmonite and its endless possibilities. I first purchased a DIY kit to try it for myself and I feel in love with the process, the ease of use and little requirement for specialised equipment or space. As a designer, my imagination exploded with the prospect of all the ideas I could materialise using this material. I am now so excited to be sharing my knowledge of this product for you to discover and try out a new craft skill.”

A note about the class:

The class may not be suitable for people who have any hands or wrists problems as the process requires hand sanding and polishing.

Please wear comfortable clothing that you don’t mind getting a bit of water splashed. The material used will wash off, but avoid wearing your best clothes!

 

FAQs

Are there ID or minimum age requirements to enter the event?

Any child under 16 must be accompanied by an adult and we operate a no under 10 policy.

What are my transportation/parking options for getting to and from the event?

On street parking is free and unlimited. Public transport links are nearby, and the venue is easily accessible on foot from Liverpool City Centre.

How accessible is the venue?

The workshop is located on the ground floor which provides full accessibility to the premises including toilet provisions. We would advise wheelchair users to contact the workshop provider on the sale of the ticket to arrange a parking bay.

Where can I contact the organiser with any questions?

Feel free to get in touch with the Make CIC office at 0151 601 8665 or email hello@makecic.org

Is my registration/ticket transferrable?

If you find that you cannot attend then you are welcome to pass your place on to a friend who may find it useful. Please let the organiser know if you need to do this.

Alternatively tickets can be transferred to a future event up to 14 days before the event.

Do I have to bring my printed ticket to the event?

No, a register will be taken at the workshop, it isn’t necessary to print your ticket.

What is the refund/cancellation policy?

Refunds will be offered in the event of the class being cancelled – in this instance we will give as much notice as possible, usually at least 5 days, and offer alternative dates if appropriate.

This class does have a minimum requirement of ticket sales to proceed, so there is a possibility of it being cancelled, but we will contact you five days before if this is the case.

If for any reason you find you are unable to attend then please get in touch and a refund can be offered up to 7 days before the workshop.

This is because we pay our practitioners fair wages for their work- giving refunds on last minute cancellations would mean that practitioners would not be paid for the preparation they have put into their classes.

*Refunds will be given minus Eventbrite fees, unless Make CIC cancel the class, in which case a full refund will be given*

The name on the registration/ticket doesn’t match the attendee. Is that okay?

Please bring along a print out of your ticket if the registration does not match the attendee, or contact hello@makecic.org to have them change the ticket so it contains your name.

What can I bring into the event?

You don’t need to bring anything but yourself. All materials are provided and we also have a café on site selling coffee, tea and delicious lunches/ snacks. Wear comfortable clothing that you don’t mind getting a bit dirty and feel free to bring along a drink or a snack if you prefer.
