Workshop `Rethinking the Sevillian tile of the 15th century´
This new activity (of particular interest to students in the fields of the arts, design, architecture, etc.) invites participants to contribute to the design of a collection of tiles inspired by the Sevillian dry cord ceramic tradition of the 15th century. Employing creativity, conditional design and design thinking techniques, they will work to create more contemporary versions of the tiles of that historical period.
The aim is to work with a concept of flexible and experimental collection to create a graphic skin with the tiles. The participants will be able to play with experimentation, randomness and composition based on the deconstruction of the traditional tiles.
Free workshop limited to 25 participants. Enrolment essential via this link.
The workshop will take place at LAB Sevilla. Calle Peral, 57 bajo.
Materials to be provided by the participants:
Paper, felt tip pens, pens, coloured pencils.
Optional: laptop computer with Adobe Illustrator or Photoshop.
