Linda Bloomfield: Glaze Material & Making Workshop

August 10 @ 10:00 am - August 11 @ 4:00 pm

Free – £220.00

This workshop is the sought after two day glaze workshop by Linda Bloomfield. There are two elements of this workshop: (i) glaze materials lecture and (ii) practical glaze making and discussion. On day 1, Linda will demonstrate glaze making, after which you will be mixing your chosen glazes and then glazing your test tiles. At the end of day 1, your test tiles will be fired. On day 2, we will start with a talk on glaze materials. The kiln will be opened during lunch and we will be discussing the results in the afternoon.

Please note that this is a learning workshop and London Potters cannot guarantee results from this workshop.

There is a limit of 12 attendees only so early booking is essential.

Please read carefully the materials you will need to bring for this workshop.

You will need to bring the following:

  1. 20 test tiles: Vertical tiles only (flat or other forms will not be fired if we run out of space).Use clay that you normally use. Clay should be able to be fired to 1240C.  Test tiles should be bisqued at low fired temperatures. Test tiles must stand with stability and not wobbly – if tiles are not stable, they may fall and stick to other people’s tiles during firing. Wobbly tiles will not be fired to protect other attendees’ work.
  2. Dust mask
  3. Digital scale accuracy to .01 or triple beam
  4. Additional scale that can measure up to 300g of material
  5. Standard 80 mesh sieve. Two sizes: (1) Test sieve should be slightly smaller diameter than the container so that it fits on top (2) larger sieve for the base glaze
  6. A bowl which should be large enough to hold up to 700ml of liquid (for the base glaze)
  7. 15 x covered plastic tubs if you wish to take test glazes home
  8. 15 x small plastic containers which your test tiles can be dipped into
