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!!

Glaze Testing Cone 6 – Quakertown, PA

June 7-9, 2019

John Britt:
Hands On Glaze Testing – Cone 6

This is a 3-day hands-on cone 6 electric glaze testing workshop which is designed to show students how to test a base recipe and get various colors. On Friday we will be preparing test tiles with a base glaze and ten colorant variations.

We will fire on Saturday in the cone 6 electric kiln and then on Sunday we will discuss the results when they are unloaded from the kiln.

The workshop will also be a general overview of ceramic glazes, focusing on cone 6 glazes, reduction and oxidation. 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 glazes from my 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.

John will bring his sets of 1500 test tiles that will inform the discussion.
He will also bring samples of pottery, books and DVD’s.

Details Pending. For more information:
