Glaze workshop in September!

Making and Modifying Glazes: Saturday September 7 & 14
10 – 12 pm 1 – 4 pm WPA glaze rooms 
$100 members/$125 non-members
 
A hands on workshop taking place over two Saturdays where you learn how to make up a glaze safely and then how to modify it using simple additions or blends. Then the following Saturday have a look at the results and do some more.
There will be lots of weighing and sieving and recording and you will build up a small group of fired samples and tests.

Bring an apron (or overalls or lab coat), a notebook and pen. Materials, including fired test tiles will be available, however glazes come out differently on different clay so feel free to bring small samples of bisque fired clay you are currently using. You do not have to be a mathematician or scientist to enjoy the magic of glazes.   Please expect to pay an additional $5-10 for glaze materials and bisque test tiles (if needed)
