Pera Adult

Inspired by tile motifs carrying traces of the past and designed in line with the conceptual framework of the Souvenirs of the Future, this workshop offers participants an art-filled experience. Led by ceramic artist Cansu Sakız, participants in the workshop draw inspiration from contemporary artworks in the exhibition and learn about the traditional underglaze tile painting technique. They bring their designs to life on ceramic bisques by transferring patterns, embellishing with a brush, and using coloring techniques. 

Note: Participants can pick up their fired ceramics from the museum one week after the workshop.
