Join Piet van den Beuken to enjoy a brief history of the Dutch Delft tile. Learn about the design influences and how the tiles were made and used throughout history for decorative and practical purposes.
Starting with blank, unglazed ceramic tiles, Piet will teach you all the techniques you need to paint four tiles with your own pattern or design in the Delft tradition. The tiles will be glazed and fired for you in her studio and sent to your home usually within ten working days.
Piet van den Beuken studied Architectural Design at St Joost Academy of Art Breda and Graphic Design at the Rietveld Academy of Art Amsterdam. Being Dutch, Piet admits that the much-loved Delft Blue of Holland holds a special place in her heart and has influenced her to work with the distinctive blue and white palette for her tableware and tiles collections at her company Roelofs and Rubens.
