Multiple CPD formats
Creative Tile Fabrication - Specifying bespoke surface designs and technical solutions
This CPD will show delegates how to specify creative tile designs with the use of bespoke fabrication processes. Through real-life case studies, ideas for creative ways of using tiles in projects will be shared to help delegates understand different possibilities when it comes to bespoke fabrication and installation. It will also cover relevant specification tips and regulations for staircases, waterjet cutting, tiled vanity units, natural stone mosaics, and more! By the end of this CPD you should have a greater understanding of:
- Using tiles in non-standard solutions
- Ideas and inspiration for designing bespoke and creative surface designs
- Understanding how bespoke tile fabrication can add value to a project
- Understanding how fabrication and installation processes affect bespoke tile designs
