Clay Tile Making with Blackbird Arts
Immerse yourself in the ancient crafts of tile making and decorating with wonderful local artists Adele Scantlebury and Martin Brockman.
This workshop starts with decorating clay beads which can go straight into the paper kiln which Martin will be firing throughout the day.
Pre-made tiles will be provided for decorating with clay slip and oxides, using brushes, sticks and stencils.
You can design and make simple encaustic tiles and even have a go at traditional tile-making.
And last, but not least, we should be able to unpack the paper kiln to discover the treasures within!
Suitable for adults, competent teenagers and family groups.
Cost: £95 per person/group (max 4) – this includes 20 pre-made tiles, slips and oxides. Extra pre-made tiles £1 each. Firing cost TBC. Members of Wilderness Wood are eligible for a 10% discount.
