In the Çini workshop, you will decorate a pre-baked bisque plate using the traditional Turkish tile technique. During the workshop, you will learn the traditional technique of tile painting, with Betül guiding you in developing your skills.


Before working on the biscuit products, you will practise using traditional patterns and motifs on paper, first with a pencil and then with a brush and paint. The patterns are pierced using the traditional method and then transferred with charcoal onto the surface of the 18 cm biscuit board. After drawing the outlines, the patterns are coloured in.


The ceramic plates will be glazed and baked after the workshops, after which they are delivered to the participants. Shipping cost is included in the workshop fee.


Betül Aşlı Bayram was born in the heart of Çini art, in the city of Kutahya, Turkey. She graduated from Dumplupınar University in Ceramics. Her passion for Çini grew during her studies, where she learnt the basics of this art from Dr Faruk Kahraman Şahin, one of the most valuable Çini artists and experts. Before and after graduation, she continued striving to master the art of Çini and worked in various galleries. She also worked as a graphic designer for Kütahya Porcelain, Turkey’s most renowned Çini company. Moreover, she is a member of the UNESCO-recognised Kütahya Culture and Art Foundation and a recognised Çini artist by the Ministry of Culture and Tourism of the Republic of Turkey. She organises workshops and courses in different countries to teach about this millennia-old art.
