JAAAAA finally our short special courses have started !!
The second in this series of short specialized courses is "The Basic - Glaze Making".

This is a series of 3 lessons:
Saturday - March 21 from 10:00 - 13:00 = 3 hours
- We start with a conversation about glaze, how to work with it and the basic principles of making.

  •  What is glaze
  • How to work safely with enamel
  • What does glaze consist of?
  •  Discuss a number of methods on how to apply enamel

- Then we start in groups of 2 with the preparation of basic glazes to which we will add oxides and pigments.
  •  After the explanation how you work with the dry glaze components and how to make them.
  • we go deeper into opaque makers, coloring oxides and possibly pigments and add them

On Saturday March 28, 10:00 - 13:00:
  •  Are we going to make a new series of tests from a recipe chosen here or from our own - repetition is key.
  • We also make another series of tests to learn a little more about the many possibilities.

On Saturday April 4 from 10:00 - 12:30
We will discuss all the tests that have already been made and fired and questions may be asked.
You can also take a glazed object with you what you have finished and where there are glaze faults so that we have this in the classroom
can discuss.

For those who just have to cross the threshold to start developing their own glaze but want to be very easy
start with not too much dry matter and good results.
