WEEK TWO (5-day): July 1 – 5, 2019
Classes run from 9 am – 4 pm daily and students are welcome to stay late in their studio.
Learn the basics of glaze formulation and adjustment. Amaze yourself that you can make your OWN glaze and understand how to make found glaze recipes your own. We’ll go through the basics of glaze creation and testing, from kitchen chemistry to using glaze software to better understand what’s in those glaze recipes and what each material does.
All participants will receive a free copy of the instructor’s HyperGlaze software, along with lessons on how to use it. The focus of the class will be on cone 6 oxidation glazes, but the principals outlined work with all temperatures of glazes.
Workshop level: Intermediate (Beginning glaze makers are welcome but some ceramic experience is required)
Tuition also includes lunches and daily snacks. Prices are listed in Canadian Dollars and are inclusive of all applicable taxes. An accommodation package is available in QUAD or DOUBLE occupancy and includes breakfast and dinner. Click here for further details.
