In this creative workshops I offer the client the opportunity to create bespoke pictorial ceramic tiles that can reflect people, history or celebrate a special event. Basically your tiles can depict images or writing of anything!
I will collect the images and colour from you, turn them into a jpeg file using photo shop, send them off to a company who turn them into transfers sheet.
In workshop the client chooses images and colour from the transfer sheet, cutting images and collaging, create a picture onto a bought white tile. using water transfers are then temporally fixed to the tile. Tiles are then left to dry for 24 hours then fired to become permanently fixed..
Tips to consider
Images work best if in black and white then 3 colour as a background or very bright colours.
Tiles can be either tiled to a wall or used as coasters or pictures.
Workshops can be tailored to your organization or school.
I welcome commissions, you can either supply me with images or suggest theme or I can send you a catalog of designs I have created.
I will always pass everything by you before the making starts to ensure everyone is happy. By working together we can create your perfect bespoke tiles.
