Carved Tile Workshop— 5/15/13 6:30pm - 9:30pm
Carved tiles are a wonderful way to achieve multi-textural depth and dimension. During this class participants will be using white sculpture clay to carve tiles.

It is *strongly* recommended participants save valuable time during the workshop by planning ahead and bring project ideas, including photo copies of images of interest. The instructor will provide limited carving tools but you can bring your favorites as well. The cost of the class in for ONE tile - students choose one color for glaze and the instructor will glaze, fire and return tiles within 4 to 6 weeks form the class.
