Carve your own ‘Artisan Tile’ Workshop17 August 2017
The workshop is part of FOCUS/17, at the Design Centre, 17- 22nd September
Learn about the fascinating process of tile making by carving your own relief tile in raw clay. Experience first hand the joy of working with clay.
During the workshop, you will complete at least one carved tile with either a single motif or a repeat pattern.
There will be an initial discussion and demonstration followed by a practical approach to learning. You will work directly with clay using two-dimensional designs and explore how these can be developed into three-dimensional carvings and multiple tile tessellations.
You can either bring artwork along or be inspired by our creative resources on the day. Also, see our extensive decorative tile collection
All the finished tiles once completed, will be returned to the potter to be cured and glazed, and sent back to you as your own bespoke creation!
By the end of the course, you will have gained the knowledge and confidence to be able to create your own hand made tiles, which will be suitable for any domestic application. It will also provide a good starting point for you to explore the tile making process further.
The Tile Workshop runs from 10-3pm, for more information please call our London showroom on 020 3302 9996.
