course overview

Do you have bisque-fired ceramic works that you would like to glaze and fire? Bring your bisque-fired work and learn about stoneware and porcelain glazes and high-temperature firing techniques using our gas kilns. Joseph Purtle demonstrates glazing application techniques and teaches you how to identify the appropriate forms for successful glaze interactions, how to pack and control the firing of a kiln, and how to make test samples. This is an excellent opportunity to learn how to finish your work with a range of coloured glazes, incorporating glaze-on-glaze techniques. You will complete the course with a good knowledge of glaze technologies and a selection of your glazed and fired ceramic objects.
