A Terrazzo Tray workshop is being held on Saturday from 10am to 1pm.
Terrazzo is a composite material poured in place or precast for floor and wall treatments.
Consisting of chips of marble, quartz, granite, glass or other suitable materials, poured with a cementitious binder, polymeric or a combination of both, it is set in concrete and polished to give a smooth surface.
During the workshop, participants will learn about Terrazzo and its history as well as about cement materials and how to create colourful cement flakes.
They will also learn the art of mixing cement to make a Terrazzo tray.
The Terrazzo tray is a multifunctional, round platter that can be used for serving drinks, bread or appetisers, or as a fire-safe dish for candles. Participants will take home a beautifully-made Terrazo tray while also gaining ample knowledge of the art.
The workshop, organised by the Bahrain Authority for Culture and Antiquities, will be held at Jasra Handicrafts Centre. Those aged 14 and above can take part in the event which will cost BD27.
