TURKISH TILE PAINTING CLASS
You can choose a square flat tile or plate. You can also choose a design from my selection of traditional Turkish patterns. I will teach you how to transfer the design onto the tile, and how to use ceramic paint to fill in the pattern. For Turkish tiles, they need to also be glazed and fired in the kiln, which can take up to 5-7 days. You can take the tile home with you.
