Scheduling a Workshop

Test Tiles

CALL ME if you would like a workshop in your area, I am sure that we can get something together. Even if you are a small local studio with beginning/intermediate potters or sculptors, they are my favorites!! 828-467-5020

If you are interested in a cone 6 glaze workshop and it is within 10 -12 hours driving from Asheville, NC, then I can bring 2500 test tiles and it is very easy to do. We only need a some table, chairs and a room that holds 20 – 35 people and I will explain glazes, firing, testing, safety, adjusting glazes, etc. in a relaxed atmosphere of fun and learning. If you are not within that range, I can always fly to your studio and we can discuss what you need.

But if you want a cone 6 hands on testing workshop then we do need a ceramic studio, but it doesn’t have to be sophisticated. I have done it in many venues that are just normal potters studios!

I also do hands on weekend glazing and firing workshop on Oil Spot, Copper Red, Shino, Mid-Range Crystalline glazes. I also do low fire sculpture workshops.

I have done over 200 workshops across the US as well as Canada and Europe.

It is no risk to you or your center because if we don’t fill it 30 days out we just cancel or postpone it and no one loses money.  Let me know and we will see if we can work it out at your studio. It will be memorable and FUN!!

Cornell Studio (Dayton Ohio) Cone 6 Glaze Testing Workshop 1

August 17-19, 2018

This is a 3 day hands on TESTING workshop where we will run Color Blends with various cone 6 base glazes. It will also be a general overview of ceramic glazes, focusing on but not limited to cone 6 glazes. It is designed for beginner to intermediate potters. We will discuss cones, kilns, firing dynamics and principles as well as applying those principles to various firing cycles. This will lead us into some basic classifications of glazes, like ash, celadon, temmoku, etc. We will discuss how and why each type of glaze works and how you can achieve them, how to adjust your glazes and how to find new ones. We will discuss glazes from my new book: “The Complete Guide to Mid-Range Glazes: Glazing and Firing at cone 4 – 7”, but will go into more detail than the book allowed.

Tiles will be made ahead of time and we will mix glazes and run tests on the first day, fire the second day and discuss results the final day.

Adamah Clay Studio – Dodgeville WI

JOHN BRITT- EXPERIMENTAL SHINO WORKSHOP

November 24 – December 1, 2018

This is an experimental shino workshop where we will explore various shino glazes in a variety of firing cycles. One firing will be wood (firing in the catenary with Gary Carstens) with extended cooling at 1800°F. And then where will be two gas reduction firings (Firing in the Bailey gas kiln with Jennifer Mally) with various slow cooling cycles. The goal will be to explore effects of slow cooling on shino colors but we will also explore crawl shinos, carbon trap and traditional shinos. We will try the same glazes in the two gas firings on student test tea bowls.

We will have about 7-10 different shinos in the studio for glazing. We will also have various washes: soda ash, salt, burnt umber, red iron, manganese dioxide, copper carbonate, rutile etc. as well as flashing slips for wood and various types of wood ashes.

Participants should bring 30 pieces for the wood firing and 20 for the gas firings. The work should be made with cone 10 porcelain or light stoneware (B-Mix recommended) and everything must be bisque fired prior to arrival.

COST:

Workshop: $650

Food and Lodging: $450
