Handmade Tile Festival This Weekend

Have we ever told you how much we love helping local artists and arts organizations? Here’s a great example. The organizers of the 7th Annual Handmade Tile Festival came to us to help shake things up a bit and spread the word about their show and sale. We’ve had such fun supporting Artisan Tile Northwest and the 30 talented artists who will be showing their work this weekend at the Center for Urban Horticulture near University Village. Friday night’s juried show is being judged by Seattle author and KUOW weekly guest Marty Wingate, Charles Price and Glenn Withey from Dunn Gardens and ceramic artist George Rodriquez. Saturday features sales, demos, presentations, door prizes and new this year: Seattle’s Own “Antique Tile Roadshow”. Bring in photos of historic tiles in your home and experts with the Tile Heritage Foundation will identify the tile-maker. Think your fireplace has old Batchelder or other classic tiles? This is your chance to find out.
