Terrazzo making: part 1

Join Lottie McCarthy, Sam Slattery, Kathryn Tovey and Sara Jackson from Open School East in collectively making brightly coloured, playful, and environmentally sustainable composite terrazzo tiles to replace the missing stone slabs of the Sunken Garden. As well as contributing to repairing the landscaped garden, you will leave with the skills to make terrazzo floor tiles, and a terrazzo recipe to take home.

For part 1, we will be choosing colours, mixing and pouring the tiles.

For part 2 (Sunday 26 September, 14:00-16:00), we will reveal the tiles, sand and polish them, and lay them in their final positions in the garden.

Feel free to drop in for either or both sessions, but for the full experience join for both to follow your own handmade tiles through the whole process.
