From 2018 through June 2019 we are anticipating 5000 hand-printed tiles will have been produced by people active, either directly or indirectly, in the tile industry – we’re inviting all to press their hands into a wet clay tile and become a part of the mural to be installed at TCNA headquarters in Anderson, SC!

BECOME A HAND-PRINT DONOR WALL SPONSOR! There are multiple levels of opportunity:

NOTE: You may host an onsite hand-print workshop for your staff (and invited guests) decorating “wet” 9-inch tiles with logos, names and alphabetic and numeric characters supplied by Tile Heritage (if needed). For detailed information email Tile Heritage: foundation@tileheritage.org. Alternatively, you may choose to provide Tile Heritage with financial support to cover its expenses for clay, firing, shipping and installation.
