Are you intimidated by glaze? Do you find glaze testing too theoretical or too precise? Does the thought of spending hours in the glaze kitchen make you tired?
In this two-day workshop, Internationally known Australian ceramicist, Greg Daly, will simplify both glaze development and application. On day one, you’ll learn quick tools to develop or change a glaze. Imagine mixing up 30 test glazes in 30 minutes and gaining over 200 bits of information from those tests alone! Day two will cover glaze application. Greg will go over application techniques, how to choose glazes, how application alters the outcome.
There is a bonus lecture the day prior to the workshop, in which Greg will cover the history and variety of lustres.
This is a hands-on workshop suitable for all levels.
