Tiles are a central part of our homes, and even a few beautiful well-placed ones can transform a living environment.

Patterns in Nature is a workshop that will introduce you to the tile-making process and way of looking at nature that sees essential form, structure and beauty.

We’ll transfer that beauty into the tiles we design, make and fire together. We will start with drawings that we can break down into repetitive patterns, discuss how best to translate those drawing onto ceramic surfaces and create simple press molds so the design can be created in multiples. Color will be added in the form of slips and glaze. The pieces will be fired in an atmospheric soda kiln that will add a final dimension and unique beauty to each tile.

This workshop is designed to empower DIYers who want to make tiles for their own home projects. You will be given the freedom to express your artistic imagination with an expert on hand to mentor you.

If you love tiles, but have been disappointed by what is commercially available, or shocked to see how expensive they are, this workshop is for you.
