The mosaics at Philadelphia’s Magic Gardens contain many special ceramics. PMG creator Isaiah Zagar makes ceramic “doily tiles” by pressing lace into clay, which he colors with glaze. He also adds his own images, designs, and words on donated tiles.

In this workshop, participants will choose and decorate two ceramic forms – we have nine fun shapes! — and glaze a doily tile ornament inspired by Isaiah. We will fire these unique pieces in our kiln, turning them into enduring gifts or ornaments.

  • Pieces will be ready for pick up beginning Friday, December 8.
  • Please be aware that we will be working in a space that can only be accessed by stairs. Tickets also include general admission to PMG.
  • This workshop is open to participants ages 5+, but all participants under 18 must be accompanied by a paying adult participant.
  • Tickets are not refundable.
