CONE 6-Hands on Glaze Workshop with John Britt : Georgian Bay Pottery, Canada

During this 3-day workshop we will make glazes and dip tiles on Friday. On Saturday, we will fire the kiln and discuss all things glaze and on Sunday we will unload the kiln and try to get a better understanding of the properties of glazes through seeing the tiles in a new light.

  • The workshop provides an 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.
  • Covering how and why each type of glaze works and how you can achieve them, how to adjust your glazes and how to find new glazes and approaches. You will go home with a whole new set of skills and knowledge about Glazing.
  • There is a course welcome event and optional social activities for students joining the course.
