“Terrazzo was born over 500 years ago as a way to upcycle offcut marble. My intention is the same: to reuse any waste I generate.”

With this sustainable approach, artist Lucy Lowe crafts both stylish and functional home accessories and stationery items. Through her studio, Hey Kiddo Co, she has worked with brands including beingMAVE, Brick & Mortar, and The Materials Designs.

In this online course, Lucy teaches you how to use Jesmonite to cast and finish your own terrazzo-patterned pieces.
