Nature

Experience - Tile Imprinting Course: Part 2 of 2

As it takes at least a week for clay tiles to dry out sufficiently before being kiln fired, participants′ ″biscuit fired″ tiles will be returned to the Bothy for stage 2 of the tile imprinting course. This is the time to apply your artistic skill to your imprints, either to replicate and preserve the nature of the material or to defy Nature and break the rules!

Once painted, the tiles will be taken away for glazing and their final firing, tiles will returned to the Bothy for collection after two weeks.
