Introductory Glaze Workshop with Lucy Winch. Sun 20th Oct.

60.00

Lucy Winch has been a scientist and potter for over 20 years. She will be running a 1-day glaze workshop for beginners, designed to give you all the skills and knowledge you need to confidently and safely create your own glazes from raw materials.

This workshop will take you through the basics of glaze chemistry, delivered in an understandable way. You will cover oxides and colour in glazes and health and safety aspects surrounding glaze materials. You will be given step by step instructions on how to make your own glaze and discover what makes satin, shiny and matt surface finishes and glaze faults.

There will be a demonstration on how to make test tiles on the wheel and a chance to make your own hand-built test tiles. You will go home with a sample of the glazes you have made during the day. Glazed test tiles will be ready for collection 3 weeks after the workshop.

Cost of workshop includes all materials and equipment used. Please bring a notebook with you to jot down any additional notes. Aprons provided.

Tea, coffee and lunch provided. Please get in touch if you have any dietry requirements.

The workshop will run from 10am until 4pm on Sunday 20th October 2019.
