Follow-on Course: Ceramic Tiles  – Evenings
6pm – 8.30pm, Sunday – Thursday October 2019

In this follow-on course we will be constructing a set of ceramic tiles. We will work with a traditional geometric design not previously taught in Abu Dhabi that will comprise a family of different polygonal modules that can be arranged in different configurations. Students will be taken through the whole process of constructing the design with compass and straight edge, exploring a suitable colour palette, creating the plaster negative negative, incising the design into plaster and then transferring the design to the clay tile. Once fired the tiles will be painted using ceramic glaze before an additional final firing. Each student will come away with their own individual set of ceramic tiles.

Note: This is a more advanced module. Only participants who have already completed one, or ideally both, of the previous Art of Islamic Pattern Introductory workshops may join this module. The content is completely different to, but will complement the previous follow-on course.
