Introduce yourself to Glazing! Over 4 mornings on the 11th, 12th, 18th & 19th July 2023 you will produce a ceramic grid of commonly used pottery materials, providing a tangible example of the qualities of basic ceramic materials and their effect on glazes. You will make clay shrinkage tests to understand the effect of drying and firing on different clays, you will learn what materials are needed to make a glaze and understand the use of glaze recipes. You will mix a glaze from a recipe and perform a line blend to make and test coloured glazes. You will glaze a small object with a glaze of your making.
