In this course you will learn basic glaze chemistry – why glazes do what they do – what works, why it works, and why it doesn’t work.
You will learn about the raw materials, fluxes, colourants, opacifiers, and more.
Glaze faults, why and how to correct them
Basic formulation and bucket level testing – and how to keep track of your test results!
Different types of glaze – atmospheric conditions, firing cycles, temperatures, and more….
This course is suitable for beginner potters, hobby potters and professional potters alike – you will learn the basics, or gain more mastery of your glaze formulations.
Your teacher for this course is Lynda Lehmann who has a Bachelor of Ceramic Design – passing 3 years of glaze chemistry with distinctions! While the course cannot be as in depth as a degree course, or even a diploma course – it will give an exceptional overview and understanding of how to read glaze formula’s, how to test them and alter them, how to correct glaze faults, etc.
Course fees include all materials and firings, plus additional studio time if you require it.
