Turkish Iznik Tile Making

Landmark Arts Centre

19 October 2020 -
10:30

Friendly, expert teaching with COVID-19 measures in place for your safety. 

Iznik was an established centre for the production of simple earthenware pottery with an underglaze decoration when, in the last quarter of the 15th century, craftsmen in the town began to manufacture high quality pottery with a frit ware body painted with cobalt blue under a colourless transparent lead-free glaze. The designs combined traditional Ottoman  arabesque patterns with Chinese elements. In Iznik tiles, dark blue colour of lapis lazuli, turquoise blue, coral red, emerald green can be seen with similar colours as semi-precious stones.

A ceramic tile (10x10cm) will be painted by attendees using traditional soil-based underglaze paints. A second tile will be available for attendees for those who finish one. Our instructor will glaze and fire them up to 1100°C for 9 hours in the kiln after the class.

Students will collect their work once they are ready.

All levels of ability and experience are welcome.

Whilst every care is taken in firing your work, please remember that ceramics can be subject to cracking during firing.

Calming Mandala (pen and ink)

Landmark Arts Centre

Friendly, expert teaching with COVID-19 measures in place for your safety. 

A mandala is an ancient traditional artform designed to help focus the attention and in some cultures, the spirituality, of the artist. Its roots lie in Eastern religions such as Buddhism and Hinduism.

In contemporary art, the mandala is a diagram, chart or geometric pattern with the design flowing from the mind of the practitioner. It is a meditative process and although usually geometric, modern mandalas can be expressed in many different ways.

All levels of ability and experience are welcome.

Our tutor will provide the materials for this workshop which are included in the price. Materials supplied will include paper, pens and pencil, eraser and ruler.
