This class is for passionate ceramicists of all levels looking to expand their skills and learn about mixing, developing, testing and refining glazes. Over 4-weeks you will massively expand your knowledge of glaze technologies and finish the class with the knowledge and confidence to start experimenting with mixing your own glazes.
A great glaze can really distinguish and elevate a piece of ceramic and the ability to mix, develop and refine your own glazes will add a whole new element to your practice. The focus of this class will be on building skill and knowledge rather than producing objects. There will be lecture, demonstration and practical components to this class that will introduce the knowledge, skills and processes involved in mixing and developing glazes.
