This course is an introductory course where students will be challenged to make a grouping of wall-hanging tiles.
Participants will be taught decorative methods, such as sgrafitto, inlay, and sculptural carving to decorate a series of tiles. Students can expect to leave with a minimum of 3 tiles. Using a series of found objects and studio tools, we will learn basic and advanced methods of decoration to adorn our tiles with a series of finishes.
