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!

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.

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!

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!

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 - Nov 27, 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 - Nov 19, 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

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 ! :)

Really fun and interesting class, learnt lots and had a fantastic plant pot at the end!
Shabby - May 15, 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 - May 7, 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 - May 1, 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 - Apr 27, 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 - Apr 25, 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.

I almost forgot to do this review but better late than never! Francesca is very friendly and a great teacher. My girlfriend and I were able to follow along easily and ended up with two beautiful looking pots at the end. Recommended for a fun date!
Kate - Oct 6, 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!
