Our Craft Workshops

At Common Room we curate a range of crafts that are suitable for all ages, skill sets and interests. We're constantly looking to increase our offer so keep an eye out for new workshops being released soon.



If you've ever seen bold and beautiful items made from jesmonite in the shops or on socials and fancied them in your home, why not have a go at making your own?

During this workshop, you’ll have fun choosing a colour palette and creating your own pigmented jesmonite that you will crack into chips that form the terrazzo. You will then pour this fascinating material into silicon moulds to form a personalised trinket tray and matching coasters.

Once the jesmonite has set, for the last part of the workshop you will sand and polish to reveal your terrazzo design.

Air Dry Clay 

Unless you’re Grayson Perry most of us don’t have a kiln at home and so this can limit our clay based creativity. Fear not! As the name suggests, this clay dries in the air in around 24 hours. We offer a range of activities with clay including a pocket flower vase and beaded wall hangings to bespoke classes based on your requirements.
