GLAZE WORKSHOP with Isaac Patmore

Saturday 2nd & Sunday 3rd October 2021 10am – 4pm
+ results follow-up Saturday 9th October 2021 3pm – 5pm

$475 +GST & booking fee

This 2½-day workshop will cover the fundamentals of glaze making, with the main focus being on how the chemistry of the glaze effects the colour outcome. How and why you must follow rules to gain certain colours. This will be explained through a series of examples showing the roles different materials play in the glaze make up.

On the first day some glazes will be made and some testing techniques explored. On the second day will be focused on glazing application, exploring different techniques of application and using resists to achieve a multi-layered surface. The tests will all be fired, and then the group gets together again a week later to discuss the results and ask more questions.

The workshop is suited for students who are just starting to mix their own glazes or those that seek a deeper understanding of why certain glazes do certain things (intermediate level).

Students will be supplied with all materials and equipment to make glazes, some tiles for testing glazes and a couple of thrown items for testing application techniques.

Students are encouraged to bring some of their own bisqued STONEWARE work to glaze if they would like. Students are required to bring their own safety gear, such as respirators/face masks and enclosed shoes.

$475 (+GST & booking fee)  includes all materials & firings as well as lunch & refreshments (lunch provided for the weekend of 13th & 14th February)
