Designing and making tiles

Last term we were looking at the Muslim faith and at the beginning of the term we visited the V&A Museum. We looked at features of the Muslim faith and one of the things we remember is looking at a minbar staircase which had Islamic patterns on it.

Today we were making tiles which were inspired by the Islamic tiles which we saw. First of all we designed them in our sketch book. Then we were given a piece of clay and we had to make a tile and with the left over pieces we made shapes to go on them. The tiles will go into the kiln to be fired and we will paint them. Then they will go on display. We enjoyed our visit to the Museum and we enjoyed making the tiles.
