This course runs on Wednesdays at 6pm and begins on the 8th of February. In this course, Gwen Parsons from General Pottery will take you through the hows, whys and wherefores of glazing. She will discuss and demonstrate how glaze works, then you will make testers and two base glazes to then work through how materials change the colour or texture. There will be discussions around firing and clay bodies and how they might affect results. This is a great all-around glaze introduction that will help to demystify this exciting process for you and give you a fantastic start to your relationship with glazing. Fees include all tuition and firing for your tests. Glazes will be provided. There is a $25 materials kit for this class that includes clay, bisqueware and raw ingredients. There will be the opportunity to purchase additional tools and materials on-site. Please note that if you are unable to attend your class, consider gifting your spot to someone else that you know who would enjoy some clay time, as we do not offer refunds or transfers. NOTE: this is an 8-week course with a one week BREAK on the 8th of March, the total runtime is 9 weeks.
