Meet at 9am at Art Lab to travel to Diligent River to the clay site on the shore of the Bay of Fundy. There we will dig clay collecting about 2 to 5 lbs per student. Bring a packed lunch to eat on the beach. In the afternoon we return to the studio to process the clay…wedging and removing any large stones or debris. This will be followed by a tea or coffee break and include a short discussion on tile making, and decorating to give participants some ideas to consider for their own tiles.
Meet at 10am to spend the day in the studio creating tiles and decorating them. The tiles need to be finished by about 4pm so they can dry and be fired overnight. We will do a once fired process so that tiles will be completed after that one firing.
Meet at 11am in the studio to open the kiln and look at the results. The afternoon will be spent attaching the tiles to whatever driftwood or other wood surfaces that have been chosen. Students can also consider a home site that they may want to tile and install them directly in their homes. Please consider that this should not be a too large space, or alternatively, the tiles could be used as accent pieces in a larger tile project.
