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!!

MASTERING GLAZES WORKSHOP WITH JOHN BRITT -Palo Alto, California

June 26-28, 2020

This three-day hands-on workshop is designed to show students how to test a base glaze recipe and get various colors in cone 6 electric and cone 10 electric firings. On Friday we will prepare test tiles with a base glaze and ten colorant variations. On Saturday we will fire, and on Sunday we will unload our tiles and discuss the results.

John Britt will also present an overview of ceramic glazes, focusing on cone 6 and cone 10 glazes. We will discuss cones, kilns, firing dynamics and principles, as well as how to apply those principles to various firing cycles. Britt will cover basic classifications of glazes, like ash, celadon, temmoku, etc. Glazes will be discussed in a practical and easy to understand dialogue designed to help potters gain an understanding of glazes, firing and glazing. The casual question and answer structure of his workshop allows students’ interest to drive the content of the weekend.

Discussions will cover how and why each type of glaze works and how you can achieve results, how to adjust your glazes, and how to find new ones. We will review glazes from John’s  book: The Complete Guide to Mid-Range Glazes: Glazing and Firing at Cones 4 – 7 as well as his high-fire book and will go into more detail than the book allowed.

All skill levels welcome.
