IAN CURRIE Hands-on Glaze workshop
This 2 day workshop by well known potter Ian Currie will be held later on Saturday 6th and Sunday 7th December 2008.Ian will take participants through his systematic glaze testing method. For those who have only a little experience with glazing, this workshop will help you understand how glaze materials affect glazes. More advanced ceramicists can glean specific information from Ian's extensive and well researched knowledge of glazes.This workshop was sponsored by an RADF grant.
Ian Currie's workshop was illuminating and inspiring, and now a group of 12 local potters know how to systematically glaze test. Stephen and Kari continue to put test tiles through the kilns. Stephen has even worked out a very effective way of making tiles.
