Cone 6 Ceramic Glaze Weekend Workshop with JOHN BRITT : Norfolk, VA

February 3 – 5th, 2023

All Hands Pottery Studio 

164 S Military Highway
Norfolk, VA
23505


This is a hands-on workshop where we will make a Color Blend with various bases to illustrate the effect
of oxides in the base and their effect on color. After we dip the tiles and load the kiln we will discuss all things glazes including oxide properties.

The workshop will 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 apply those principles to

various firing cycles. This will lead us to 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 provided and you will be sent a supply list when you register.

Cost : $320.00 Plus a $30 material fee payable on the first day of the workshop to cover test tiles, glaze-making materials, and firing.

GLAZE WORKSHOPS

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 tables, 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!!
