Basic & practical glaze workshop, February 2-4

Dates and times :

Friday 2/2 9.30-16.00

Saturday 3/2 9.30-16.00 (lunch included)

Sunday 4/2 9.30-15.00 (lunch included)

This workshop will provide a solid basis for getting started with self-made stoneware glazes. The glaze recipes are suitable for a firing temperature of 1200-1240°C (cone 6 or cone 7) in oxidation. Theory and practice will be alternated and you will work hands on with mixing, testing and analyzing glazes.

Over the days, we will make and analyze more than 250 test tiles together. We will also practice how to optimize glaze consistency to the correct specific gravity and viscosity.

Teacher is Sofie Goethals from SOGO Keramiek in Belgium. She is a former scientist and a clay and glaze enthusiast. Sofie is a production potter who makes mainly functional ware. She has been developing her own glazes since the start of her pottery adventure and has also created a range of commercially available glazes. Sofie loves teaching about glaze chemistry and is capable of transferring knowledge to potters in an accessible way.

The course is for adults (16+).

All materials for the workshop are included. You will have the option to make a kilo of glaze to take home, based on the most beautiful color sample from the workshop. This is included in the course fee. Some raw materials that we use during the workshop will be available to buy in the studio.

Each participant will get a binder with recipes and sheets for documentation of tests and results during the workshop. Please note that the test tiles will remain in the studio.
