Jesmonite is a versatile composite material invented in the United Kingdom in 1984 by Peter Hawkins and is now widely used in the creative arts sector. It is typically used for creating sculptures and other three-dimensional works

Come and spend a day with Rosie and discover how you can use this versatile material to make your own unique festive gifts, homeware and decorations. Jesmonite can be used to create coasters, planters, hanging decorations, candle holders and more. Choose your favourite colour combinations and learn different decorative techniques such as marbling and terrazzo effect, then create you very own jesmonite goodies to take home.

Please note there is a £5 material charge payable on the day.

What to expect

Time at ArtisOn is designed to take you away from it all and provide the environment, the time and the guidance you need to create. You can expect a warm welcome, skilled and friendly tutors plus the chance to meet like-minded people keen to share ideas and experiences. You can even leave us to clear up the mess! There will usually be two workshops going on and we encourage everyone to mingle and be nosey about what the other workshop is up to.

Arrive in time to meet other participants over a cup of tea or coffee and biscuits before beginning your session at the appointed time. There will be a mid-morning break for refreshments and a chance to talk over progress with others. Lunch is usually around 12:45 for about 45 mins – you can expect a homemade 2 course lunch. The main course will be delicious but don’t overdo it as the puds are usually worth waiting for! There will be a further afternoon break with the most wonderful cakes from Roots & Fruits Home Bakery, a North Yorkshire micro-bakery producing handmade bread and cakes. All food and refreshments are included in the price of the workshop.

Finish time is given as a target – there are occasions when the session may overrun so do let us know if you need to be away promptly.

We aim for your day to be a real treat… of course you could always learn a new skill in a shed or a draughty village hall with a curly sandwich, but we want you to have more fun than that! So we make it a day being looked after, with good food, good company and great inspiration!

What you’ll need to bring with you

Please wear clothes you don't mind getting messy.

“Really well structured. I felt I wasn’t being rushed or the class was going to slow. Rosie was great, really helpful and encouraging. She had put alot of thought into resources she brought with her for us to use. I’ve really enjoyed my day. Catering and friendliness of staff is brilliant. I’ve been make to feel really welcome – thank you!”
