This is a rare opportunity to intensively explore multiple approaches to tile-making. This workshop, led by one of the field’s masters of tessellation, will cover a number of techniques for getting your burgeoning ideas transferred onto relief tiles and beyond. Come prepared for an explosive weekend of alternative methods of producing tile-works hewn by the hand, the press, and the mold. Demonstrations of mosaic tile design and tile setting make this a comprehensive class. And as always, the instructor’s deep interest in and initiatives regarding issues of sustainability come to play a fascinating and inspiring role in the curriculum of this splendid weekend course.
