3 Day Glaze Chemistry Masterclass with Matt Katz, Ceramic Materials Workshop, June 2020

£350.00

This 3 day masterclass will take place on the following dates:

  • Friday 5 June – Sunday 7 June 2020

 

Join us with Matt Katz from Ceramic Materials Workshop for a 3 day spectacular on glaze chemistry, which will include glaze experiments.

Friday 5 June – Sunday 7 June 2020.

Time 10 am – 4 pm.

 

During the workshop we will discuss and examine why glazes work. We will also debunk some glaze myths!

We’ll cover:

* glaze mixing

* an overview of the different materials used in glazes

* glaze chemistry (no previous knowledge required)

* experiments, including glaze firings

* evaluating why glazes go wrong and how to improve them.

 

Our glazes will be fired at Cone 8 (around 1270°C), with room for variation. Once you’ve learnt glaze chemistry, you can adjust glazes for your own personal firings.

During the class, you will make test glazes that you get to take home with you, as well as a ceramic pencil (handy for marking your test tiles) and a Sundragon tote bag to carry your class notes and completed test tiles.

The course fee includes all materials, face mask, and refreshments. There are no additional costs.

Dress for outdoor play, as glaze can be messy, and do trim long nails.
