$480.00 – Sold out

Intensive class for ceramicists who want to up their glaze game.

*all included: basic dry materials, stains, test tiles in 3 colors, tools, protection gear, and firings, and a recipe book.

The class teached by Véronique Proulx in my studio at Le Chat des Artistes in Montreal. 

 

Program: 

After this class you will understand glaze chemistry, how to solve problems in a glaze recipe, and funky techniques likes gloops, funfettis, and crystalines glazes. You will be able to alter glazes recipes in a efficient way with different strategies to personnalize them so they are unique to you. 

We will provide test tiles + glazes but if you have a glaze recipe that needs fixing you can bring the recipe. If you work with a particular clay body we advise to bring clay samples because glaze reacts different on different clay bodies. (we provide white and red clay)
