This course introduces students to the art of Zillij, a ceramic tile style found throughout the Islamic world, particularly in Morocco.
Participants will be guided through these processes: constructing a traditional geometric design, working with the raw clay, firing the tiles, and making traditional glazes from raw pigments.
Students will be shown a variety of tile-making techniques, and will complete a panel composition to take home with them.
