This course will build on your existing knowledge of glazing.

Next Steps in Glaze Making builds upon the Introduction to Glaze Making course, where we covered basic chemistry and glaze making techniques.

In these four weeks, we will look at more complex glazes, such as volcanic and crackle glazes and also using natural substances such as ash to make glazes.

Please note: this course covers glaze making, not glaze application.  Although we may discuss different methods of glaze application, we will not be practising these techniques.

On completion of this course, students can enrol onto alternative glaze-making courses, or one of our popular Ceramics For All classes.

What I'll learn

You will learn how to make a range of glazes, including:

  • chemistry and glaze-making processes
  • safe working practises whilst working with raw glaze materials
