Glazing 101 workshop @ PJ Pottery

I will be offering an introduction to glazing workshop later in the year, please let me know if you’d like to be on the list to attend. It will be a half-day workshop and will include:

  • making a glaze from scratch
  • preparation of your pots
  • basic glaze recipes
  • making test tiles and recording results
  • introduction to the components of a glaze
  • an overview of glaze application

Attendees will assist in making a glaze and will use my glazes to put on their own bisqued pieces

$85 fee includes glaze materials and underglazes, recipes and handouts. Glaze firing of work completed at this workshop is $7/kg. More info to come…

These are one or two day intense masterclasses and workshops and I come to you and your pottery group or organisation. I have conducted these workshops for many years across NSW and Qld to individuals, schools and pottery groups and can tailor workshops to suit your needs.

As a general rule, a full day workshop is approximately $700 plus travel and accommodation (if applicable) for a group with 12-14 students for hands-on workshops.

If you are interested in finding out more, please complete the form below and I will send you an information pack.

Thank you, I will be in touch soon.
