Tile Fest ‘23 is the premier tile festival in the country, celebrating handmade tile traditions and tilemakers. This two-day festival attracts ceramists, artists, designers, collectors, museums, showrooms, and arts & industry partners. Tile Fest is an opportunity to see the most desirable and nuanced handmade tiles in the world all in one place. Visitors can shop and hang out with the talented makers behind the tiles.
Programming for the event is still growing. TileWorks welcomes back John and Lynne Hume from Sligo Creek, David Ellison, and Marcia Hovland from Michigan. Hands-on family activities include a clay playstation, a brick kit activity, and tile-making demonstrations.
TileWorks believe that making handmade tiles elevates and uplifts us and can change our world for the better. Our work inspires making, empowers learning, and nurtures creativity. We do this by championing hand-craftsmanship and its positive impact on society, increasing ceramic education and participation, growing the market for handmade tiles, and building a sustainable and inclusive craft sector.
