I usually start beginners with making tiles and some of the work is shown here. These are made from clay rolled out like pastry into slabs. The students can then make patterns on the surface and cut out tiles in various shapes. After biscuit firing they can later be decorated further and then glazed.

Some of the tiles here were produced by dementia patients in a Sunderland Care Home.
