Iznik Tile Painting Workshop

Iznik pottery is named after the town of Iznik in western Anatolia where it was first made. From the last quarter of the 15th century until the end of the 17th century, this decorated ceramic was one of the most important decorative materials embellishing Ottoman structures ranging from palaces to mosques.

Discover Iznik tile patterns and learn the history of the classical Turkish art of tile painting from artist Nagihan Seymour. During this workshop, you will be introduced to all the materials and their uses and then you will be shown painting techniques in the Iznik style, to paint your own 10x10cm tile. Following the class, the instructor will glaze and fire the finished works in the kiln. The attendees will be able to collect their work from The Lightbox once they are ready. While every care is taken in firing your work, please remember that ceramics can be subject to cracking during firing.

All levels of ability and experience are welcome
