Portuguese Traditional Baroque Tiles Workshop

Explanation of the process from drawing, to painting and final result after high temperature burning

In this workshop I explained to teachers from different countries how to use the traditional technique of painting tiles from the XVII century with blue cobalt pigment, recreating tiles with single drawings of fauna and flora figures as well as typical baroque themes. They followed the processes from designing, to painting and finally, high temperature burning of the tiles. Each teacher then had the opportunity to try it out and take home the resulting work.
