Tile Illustration Workshop

April 13th, 2024
Saturday | 14h30 - 17h30

Price - 60€ (Material included)
Trainer - Henriette Arcelin


In the Tile Illustration Workshop you will create a small illustrated panel using the majolica technique. This technique emerged in the 16th century and made it possible to apply painting techniques to tiles by brushing paint directly onto the tile.
Using a theme linked to nature and organic motifs as inspiration, each person will explore a concept and transfer it to the panel, which can have 4 tiles. In the tile illustration workshop we will cover different painting and stamping techniques.

No previous knowledge is required.
