Santa Theresa’s Beginner’s Tile Making Workshop is designed as a perfect introduction to Santa Theresa-style tile making.  It covers all the basics of cutting, glazing and firing clay into individual shaped, decorated tiles.

All materials, instruction and firings are included. Each student shall receive a basic set of tools, i.e., cutting, cleaning and glazing (brushes) tools; enough clay for approximately 3 square feet of tile; 6- four ounce colored glazes; and,  2- two ounce detail bottles to take home.

There are three lectures in this beginner’s tile making workshop that cover the basic properties of:

1 – clay bodies
2 – glazes
3 – basic firing principles and kiln loading

No art experience is necessary. This course teaches how to make ceramic tile and is designed to help students develop a facility with the materials so they can go on to create their own tile mosaic masterpieces using tiles they make themselves.
