We’ve launched Tile Me a Story. A community-wide art project to create a new large-scale artwork for Camphill MK, made up of 100’s of tiles made or inspired by you!
Tile Me a Story involves the whole community – our residents, our on-site craft workshops, and you to create a permanent artwork for the community.
Here’s How It Works:
To be a part of the art project, you can get involved in x3 ways.
You can purchase as many tiles as you like. There are three options for your donation:
- If you donate £50, a Camphill MK resident will receive a tile to decorate on your behalf.
- If you donate £75, you can submit a design you would like recreated on your behalf – this might be something you have created or artwork by a loved one
- If you donate £150, you will be invited to Camphill MK for a 3-hour workshop to decorate your own tile under the guidance of our experienced staff
To sign up and make your donation, please follow this link: Donate to Tile Me a Story.
About the Artwork
Each tile is 15cm x 15cm, hand-formed ceramic tile. The tiles will be compiled together, fixed onto a board and grouted. The art piece will then be wall-mounted.
We will record each tile and create a digital book connecting it to its artist and/or donor.
The decoration of the tile will be created by carving, stamping, adding clay to build a design, and using coloured slip – some examples of creating clay work can be found on our Pinterest Board.
If you choose to have your artwork recreated, it will be done within the team’s skillset.
All proceeds from the Tile Me a Story project will go towards our Capital Project. The ambitious building plan will span five years, and expand our services and facilities. The final tile artwork will be installed within the project.
