Learn to Make Glazes

Ceramic Glaze Making 102

Over 10 people have attended this class


This class is for people who already have some experience with glaze making and want to learn some theory and chemistry as well as the practical side. Or for beginners who want to dive right in.

The theory you'll learn

  • what the different materials in a glaze recipe are for
  • how to understand what Glazy can tell you about a the chemistry of a glaze
  • how to plan an experiment to test a glaze

And during the class

  • we'll do a line blend to test a glaze

If you'd rather a more hands on glaze making experience without all the chemistry, maybe you'd like my Learn to Make Glazes for Absolute Beginners instead.

I have two favourite parts of pottery: making glazes and wild clay, and I want to share my love of them with you.

I want to empower other potters to get out there and experiment with confidence.

I had some glaze making experience before attending Kim’s workshop but still felt out of my depth when it came to the chemistry. I now feel like I have enough basic knowledge to start experimenting with recipes on my own. I also feel more confident with testing techniques. Kim is a wealth of knowledge and really goes above and beyond to help you achieve your glazing goals. I can highly recommend booking a session!

Fantastic workshop with detailed information on the chemistry of glaze making coupled with practical application. I was able to choose a glaze I would like to either develop or customize and left the workshop with a comprehensive set of tests documented. Kim has a deep understanding of glaze making and taught us how to use the Glazy site and tools to not only make glazes but share our results with others. I can't wait to see the results of the tests when the test tiles come out of the kiln! Would recommend this workshop to anyone wanting to understand glaze making.
