Explore textile patterns from around the world to create your own ceramic tiles.

About this Event

Journey into a world of pattern with artist Ghazal Rahimi to create your own ceramic tiles inspired by global textiles. This workshop will prompt deep looking and imagining as you ask yourself questions like: What are the main elements of this piece? Which part of the work do you find most crucial; the form, the patterns, the colors, the hand? How would this work live as a tile? What would this object/textile have looked like coming from your hands?

All materials are included. Please wear clothing you don't mind getting dirty or bring an apron to work in. Tiles will be fired after the workshop and available for pickup within 2 weeks. For those interested, a selection of tiles created in the workshop will be exhibited at the museum.
