Ceramic tiles workshop with Linzi Ramsden
Two day workshop
Saturdays 14 & 28 February 2015
Have you always wanted to try your hand at ceramics? Do you want to learn a new skill or experience something new? Is your creative side itching to get out? This is your chance…
Join our award-winning resident ceramicist Linzi Ramsden in this exciting two-day workshop where you will make your own decorative ceramic tiles.
You will learn a variety of techniques including printing textures into clay, cutting your tiles, and finishing them off by painting with stains and oxides. The process gives you huge scope to create your own unique designs. Linzi will provide different textures which she usually uses in her work, but you are encouraged to bring in your own textures to work with too.
Linzi will guide you through the whole process, from design through to the finishing of your tiles. Across the two days you will make either 2 30x30cm tiles, or 6 15x15cm tiles. You will also take away a set of new skills and lots of handy tips.
PLEASE NOTE: This is a two day workshop. The first day will include rolling your tile and creating and printing your design. Linzi will fire your tiles for you ready for the second session, where you will paint them.
*Concession tickets are available for students, senior citizens, those with disabilities and the unemployed. Please bring proof or ID along with you to the workshop.
Please note that lunch is not provided. You are welcome to bring a packed lunch, explore the many local eateries in the Northern Quarter, or join us at the lovely Oak St. Cafe Bar onsite at MCDC.
For any more information, please email us or call us on 0161 832 4274.
