Intro to Tilemaking

Classes

I am currently working with individuals one on one – see the Directed Tile Study option.  Contact me directly if you are interested –  slt@sheryltuorila.com  or ph: 612.423.9197

An introduction to tile making for mosaics.

  • Students will explore texture, shape, and glazing while making terra cotta tile.
  • Students are encouraged to bring cookie cutters and unique textures.
  • The first night will be an overview of the process and an opportunity to “play” with the clay.
  • Students will finish class with 5-7 square feet of tile.
  • Last class includes a basic introduction to tile adhesives and installation techniques including mesh mounting.

I work to create a fun, relaxed, low pressure atmosphere for students to explore and develop their own individual creativity.

When:
At least four meeting times are encouraged.
Cost:
$350 for making an eclectic and unique bunch of tiles to make mosaics with.  $450 minimum for more involved projects involving more time for design, color selection, etc – for installations.  Let’s have a chat and figure out what you’re looking for!
Location:
All classes take place in my studio in the Northrup King Building, home to over 100 artists in Northeast Minneapolis.
