This FACE-to-FACE workshop will cover the history of the traditional İznik ceramic/çini patterns from renowned artist Nagihan Seymour.

İznik pottery is named after the town of İznik in western Anatolia where it was founded. From the last quarter of the 15th century until the end of the 17th century, these decorated ceramics were one of the most important decorative materials embellishing Ottoman structures ranging from palaces to mosques. 

During this workshop, participants will first be introduced to all the materials and their uses. After becoming acquainted with the materials, you will be shown painting techniques in the Iznik style and will paint your own tile (10×10). 

Following the class, the instructor will glaze and fire the finished works in a kiln. The attendees will be able to collect their work from the Yunus Emre Institute London once they are ready.  

Suitable for all levels and the course price is including all materials.

IMPORTANT! Please understand, whilst every care is taken in firing your work, ceramics can be subject to cracking during firing.
