Advanced Porcelain 4 Week Course

November 9, 2021 @ 9:30 am - 12:30 pm


Porcelain 4 Week Intermediate and Advanced Course

Starting Tuesday 9th November 9:30 am – 12:30 pm

Learn about the amazing material of porcelain!

We use a mid-fire Keane’s Lumina which is not a true porcelain, however the material is similar and still exciting to use! Porcelain is knows as a difficult material – prone to cracking, delicateness, difficulty in handling. We will discuss the effects and limitations of using a mid fire porcelain and the advantages/disadvantages of using a true high fire porcelain.

Week One

  • Using Keanes Midfire Porcelain slip
  • Make nerikome slabs
  • Make a Porcelain platter with nerikome slab inserts

Week Two

  • Using nerikome slabs to create fine hand built pieces
  • Make cups, vases and flat based bowls

Week Three

  • Hand build or throw with porcelain an use decoration with washi, oxides, slips, and underglazes – keep in mind adding decals and lustres
  • Try using porcelain in thrown or hand built pieces as additions at the wet stage or leather hard stage.

Week Four

  • Slip cast with porcelain using coloured slips and marbling
  • Use porcelain slip to create slab built items
