Your Teacher

Salt Studios is a London-based designer maker brand by British artist Francesca Pappacoda. They make simplistic yet unique homewares and jewellery that are inspired by colour, texture and design. Each piece is carefully handmade in their South East London studio.

Salt Studios was formed in 2017 by Francesca as a side business to support her painting practice, where she explored her interest of process and materiality. Overtime this naturally crossed over into her product designs. As Salt Studios organically grew Francesca now runs the business full-time in South East London.

We had a great time learning something new and having a fun, creative experience. Salt Studios provided a knowledgeable workshop to inspire our pot making. Thank you!
Katie - 7 January 2024
I did this workshop yesterday and I had a really great time. I’m not a particularly creative person but Fran was so lovely and so helpful with explaining the steps and correcting some colour mixing mishaps. I found the whole session really relaxing after a stressful week and I left feeling so good. I am beyond thrilled that I got to create my pot from start to finish and take it home with me. I have already had several compliments on it. I can’t recommend this workshop enough. I would definitely do it again and any other similar workshops that Fran might do in future :)

Wonderful class, great teaching with a beautiful pot at the end!
Lizzie Speirs - 25 October 2023
Really great workshop. The pot is gorgeous! Completely up to you what colours you use. Fran was really relaxed, informative and helpful. I did this at London Terrariums (a brilliant space & well located) and everything was organised so well, even with drinks and snacks provided. Would love to do again!
Alicia Vidal - 23 October 2023
Absolutely fantastic workshop! Fran is a great teacher, super patient and so much fun. My friends and I had such a wonderful time and were so happy with our gorgeous new pots. Cannot recommend enough - thank you so much, Fran.
Helen King - 16 October 2023
Fantastic workshop! I took my mum as a birthday present and we had so much fun and made some gorgeous pots. We loved that it was really hands on and we got to mix our own colours to create something bespoke. The process is interesting, with different techniques and stages to get to the final product, and it’s fab that it only takes a few hours, so you get to take your finished pot home with you! Great for impatient people like me. Francesca is lovely and a brilliant teacher. The whole vibe of the workshop was one of the best we’ve experienced. Highly recommend!
Adam Layzell - 10 October 2023
Had a fantastic time! We made great looking pots, and enjoyed the process. Being able to do the course and have a product to takeaway in one afternoon was superb. The host was fun and overall would highly recommend!
Rebekah - 9 October 2023
Had a great time and was a relaxing and fulfilling way to spend a Sunday! Fran gave clear instructions and encouraged us to take risks with our colour choices and have faith in the process :) She shared biscuits too!

Joan Ashworth - 2 July 2023
I really enjoyed this workshop, it was very well paced and interesting and you end up with something very professional looking. The tutor is really clear in her instructions. The colour mixing was really focusing and pleasurable. A small group of 5 was really perfect.

We had an incredible time. Fran's workshop was cosy and inviting and Fran herself was a great teacher - inspiring and fun. It was so rewarding to take our finished pots home after a joyful few hours of colour mixing, pot creating and sanding. Highly recommend.

Alicia Pilcher - 4 September 2022
We made beautiful pots, great instructions, an all round good time was had by all

Rehana Gittens - 22 August 2022
Francesca's workshop was great and good value much more involved that I thought. She was lovely throughout we had a great day and love our pits.

This was a great workshop and I had my first taste of terrazzo! I came away feeling inspired to experiment more with surface design!
Aditi Singh - 18 July 2022
The jesmonite planter-making workshop with Fran was lovely - with time and attention spent at each step of the process, really clear steps and instructions, and a great atmosphere of crafting as a group! Would recommend to anyone wanting to learn a new skill, make something valued or give as a present!
Shona van Aswegen - 3 July 2022
I had a fantastic time at the Jesomite Plant Pot workshop. Highly recommend for a fun, creative workshop. Very pleased with the end result - a lovely terrazzo plant pot!
Siu-Lan Choi - 30 June 2022
I had so much fun on this course. It was messy so it would be nice to have a sink slightly closer to hand! But the end product is a fantastic pot to take away with you at the end of the day. One recommendation would be to have a kit available to purchase at the end of the course to create more pots at home.
Sarah - 31 May 2022
Great location, and a super class. Fran was friendly and welcoming and very patient. She gave as much help as we needed but also let us make our own decisions so that the pot was very personal. Would thoroughly recommend.
Daniel - 29 May 2022
Really great and satisfying workshop. Felt like a great balance between something where we learnt something new and also really achieveable result. Fran was great fun and personable too. Highly, highly recommend!
Tej - 29 May 2022
Amazing fun with Fran, so chilled and relaxing workshop. I went on my own - so welcoming and at the end of the workshop walked away with an amazing plant pot. 😍 recommend it.
Emaad - 25 April 2022
Great fun and great keepsake!
Veronica - 11 April 2022
I really enjoyed the workshop! I went by myself but Francesca and the other people at the workshop were very friendly and welcoming. A lovely experience overall.
Faye - 24 March 2022
Such a great workshop! We didn’t expect to mix the colours ourselves, but it was such a fun experience. Francesca is very helpful and it seems impossible to leave with something you don’t love!
Emily - 7 March 2022
Really fantastic workshop! Thanks Francesca!
Candide - 28 February 2022
I enjoyed the workshop so much! Francesca was incredibly helpful and generous and ran the workshop with absolute heart. Skill learned and a thoroughly enjoyable afternoon!
Pauline Aparicio - 28 February 2022
This is the 2d time I've done this workshop and honestly I'll be coming back again! Francesca is a great host and a fun coordinator, so you're in good hands to create your own plant pot! The group size remains quite small too so you get to socialise with the other members too. You'll come out of it having had lots fun playing with colours, energised but also kind of tempted to make some more :) Go on and give it a try!
Rupa - 27 February 2022
The best workshop I’ve been to. Francesca is so knowledgable, patient, funny and encouraging. We all made really beautiful pots and had a brilliant time making our colours. It was so nice to leave with a finished object. Cannot wait to do another workshop at Salt Studios!
Deborah Doidge - 27 November 2021
This class was amazing! We had a lovely group and had such a good time (and a good laugh!). I went on my own as I was keen to try something new but it felt like I was with my mates. Francesca is so warm and welcoming and has a lovely studio full of inspiration for your project. She explained what we would be doing, talked us through the materials we’d be using and was super helpful and hands on step by step from colour mixing to casting and sanding. I had such a wonderful time and walked away with a beautiful plant pot I love! I honestly can’t recommend this workshop enough (a wonderful gift idea!).
Hannah - 19 November 2021
My friend and I had such a fun time last night making our Terrazzo pots. Francesca is very skilled, a great teacher and just a hoot to be around. We were all chatting and cackling away as we made our pots. We’re chuffed with the finished products as well and can’t wait to go buy the plants to put in them. 100% recommend this class to anyone. Thank you so much Francesca for a lovely evening, hopefully see you soon at a market/class! X
Karen Murray - 16 November 2021
Excellent course and I'm so pleased with my pot. We had a great day with Francesca and she was incredibly knowledgeable and helpful. I would highly recommend!

Dan and Tony - 5 October 2021
We left the workshop really satisfied! A couple of hours spent having fun, being creative and making 2 really cool pots! Francesca is really friendly and explained the whole process easily and properly! The whole process of creating your own colours makes it even more special as you will be creating a unique item! Please go for it cos you'll have good time ! :)
Iva Loukanova - 3 October 2021

Aliyah Dunbar-Hussain - 27 June 2021
Really fun and interesting class, learnt lots and had a fantastic plant pot at the end!
Shabby - 15 May 2021
I really enjoyed the terrazzo pot class at Salt studios. Francesca is a great teacher, encouraging us each individually and helping us achieve the colours we were aiming for. The class took us through dying 2 different colours of terrazzo chips and then mixed that into a background pot colour. The results were great and everyone left with a really professional looking, unique pot. Thoroughly enjoyed it and would love to work with jesmonite again!
rebecca vincent - 7 May 2021
This was a great workshop and Francesca was an inspiring, patient and knowledgeable tutor that guided us through the process with ease. The studio is lovely and full of Francesca's work, so interesting to see the various casts at different stages of their production. I would thoroughly recommend this to anyone interested in starting out in jesmonite casting.
Gemma Bowman Wong - 1 May 2021
I really enjoyed the workshop and am delighted with the pot I made. Francesca was a great teacher and helped me pick out some beautiful colours to mix up. It did run over time a bit, which was not a problem for me at all, but if booking, make sure you leave a bit of extra time if you want to stay and remove your pot from the mould and sand it yourself (otherwise Francesca does this step for you and sends you the finished pot - but I really enjoyed getting that first glimpse of my pot and the colours I chose).
Katharina Joos - 27 April 2021
I thought the class was well prepared and set up, ready for people to get stuck in. Loved the studio space, and the various pots and plants dotted about provided inspiration. Francesca has great energy and with her knowledge of the whole process guided us assuredly all along the way. I came out with a nice plant pot that I’m very proud of. I would definitely recommend the workshop to my friends.
Elanor Jackson - 25 April 2021
Thanks Francesca for a fabulous jesomite pot making session, that was such fun and a bonus of a beautiful pot to walk away with. Great studio and inspiring teaching. Looking forward to making some more.

Kate - 6 October 2020
This workshop is a blissful couple of hours getting messy and creative, and now I'm very much looking forward to receiving my finished pot. What will it look like once out of the mould and sanded down? The suspense is killing me!
emily - 4 October 2020
Francesca is welcoming and friendly, the class was lots of fun and easy to follow. A lovely way to spend the afternoon :)
