Wednesday Evening Tile Sampler Workshop

Wed June 10 to 24, 2020, 6:00 pm - 9:00 pm

Small tiles provide the perfect canvas to explore various surface decoration techniques and can be considered little works of art on their own. On your first visit, you’ll roll out earthenware clay to make tiles, then add interest to the surface using shell sprigs, coloured slips, and impressions of found objects like leaves, lace, and buttons. On your second visit, you’ll apply underglazes and glazes to accentuate the textures and designs.

Dates: June 10, 24

  • Beginner – intermediate
  • Ages 18+
  • White earthenware clay
  • Hand building
  • Coloured slips, underglazes and glazes
  • 2 session
