10 Week Glaze Chemistry Master Class

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….

See the course outline here….

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.

Everything you need is supplied in this Master Class! You will have a box of supplies ready for you each week with the materials you need to learn how glaze chemicals work.

During COVID restrictions we have a class size of 6 people with plenty of space in the studio to practice social distancing. Please bring your own hand towel.
