In the tiling classes at BonTon Designs, students employ Old World techniques to handcraft unique and high-quality art pieces. Throughout each three-hour session, an expert crafter instills pupils with the knowledge of how to manufacture their own mosaic masterpieces using the studio's materials. Armed with the ability to design, assemble, and grout a mosaic wonder, novices can prove their devotion to their botanical family with a stepping-stone garden accessory or craft a mirror bordered by a kaleidoscopic array of tiles, which doubles as an art piece for a bedroom or a looking glass that warps you to work.
In the tile-painting class, artists eschew traditional canvases to craft a beautiful mural out of nine 4"x 4" tiles. Students brush and glaze their tile magnum opus with an arsenal of color-lending weapons provided by the studio. When the evening of brush-chewing, paint-eating fun comes to an end, the instructors stoke the in-house kilns to prep the project for a long life of being stared at by critical eyes.
