A practical day with the opportunity to design your own tiles, or use
pre-made patterns, with information on historical aspects of the craft.
Each participant can choose four tiles to be fired and sent to them
after the course.
The tutor is Karen Slade who has been demonstrating tile making since 1996 and enjoys
learning something new about it every year. In her role as Kate Tiler,
she demonstrates medieval tile making all around the country, using
replica tools and equipment and traditional methods. She is interested
in the interpretation and exploration of the hidden meanings of medieval
tile designs and images, an understanding of which helps to place them
in a historical context.
Fee: £110 per person, to include tuition, tea and coffee. The museum café will be open or you can bring your own packed lunch.
