Workshop: Patterned tiles with Frances Priest


A ceramics weekend workshop using An Talla Solais’s botanical exhibition (from the Collection of the Royal Scottish Academy)* to explore patterns and create tiles with ceramicist Frances Priest.

This workshop is a taster of different techniques for decorating tiles. Using drawing and collage you will work with the Collection in the Gallery to develop a series of surface pattern designs. Over the weekend you will go on to work with these drawings to explore the processes of Majolica painting and impressed and incised ceramics to create a collection of patterned tiles.

Tiles will be fired after the workshop and will need to be collected on a later date (or arrangements can be made to post them where necessary). Beginners and experienced artists are both welcome to this workshop.

Fee: £130 per person for the weekend (£115 for ATS Members) plus £30 per person for materials and firing. Places are limited so please book: joanna@antallasolais.org. A deposit will be payable.

The workshop will take place in ATS’s Clay Studio on Market Street, Ullapool IV26 2XE. *Proceeds from this course will help us cover costs of bringing the RSA’s botanical works to Ullapool: many thanks for your support!
