Guy Mitchell Design – handmade ceramic tile making


Date: Saturday 17th and Sunday 18th September
Time: 10:00 - 17:00
Location: Heritage Zone, Plantation Road.
Website: http://www.guymitchelldesign.com

A dedicated designer-maker of handmade ceramic tiles, Guy will run drop-in workshops throughout the festival.

You will be able to make a tile or decorate a pre-made blank tile. Making a tile will involve rolling out a small slab of clay, decorating it by pressing textures into it and then cutting out the tile shape.  Decorate it by painting with underglaze colours and then dipping into various glazes.

Themes and motifs for the tiles will reflect Redcar history and industry such as steel making, fishing and tourism. We will be using found items from the beach to press in to the clay (feathers, seaweed etc) aiming to produce 170 tiles, to reflect the 170 year of steel working on Teesside.

These finished tiles can be used to create a piece of wall art to commemorate Redcar’s heritage.

Drop in, no tickets needed.
