Alcohol Inks on Tile

Alcohol inks are a vibrant, fast-drying medium used to paint on non-porous surfaces such as glass, plastic, tile, or metal. The possibilities for experimentation are limitless! Experience the almost instant magic of these inks on tile. Using florals and landscapes as inspiration, we’ll create colorful, abstracted tiles. No painting expertise or alcohol ink experience is necessary. Designed to be a creative adventure, this workshop is for everyone. All materials are supplied and completed tiles will be yours to take. If you have taken this workshop previously, please note that subject matter is always different, new techniques may be introduced and previous tips and tricks will be reviewed.

All programs are subject to change.
