Glazing Dipping, double dipping, trailing & layering
Glazing Dipping, double dipping, trailing & layering Come and have fun with glazing. Let me show you that glazing can be fun and not the daunting task that it always seems. There are many techniques out there that make glazing much, much easier. I will be covering the most popular: dipping, double dipping, glaze layering and glaze trailing. We will combine all these techniques on a piece that you will take home once it is fired. Elsabe Nel-Harries

Slip Trailing & Honey Glaze
Have you seen the old English honey glaze ware – where a slip decoration is applied to a piece and a honey coloured glaze is placed over the top? It is almost like looking through a coloured glass window at the work. Using the same principals, but using the products of today, I will show you how you can use this technique to create wonderful atmospheric work. Elsabe Nel-Harries

Handles, Handles What to do!
A handle can make or break your piece. It is not just the thing to hold onto. It can be so much more. Come to my workshop and we will explore a few creative ways to do handles. I will be covering pulling handles, moulding handles, press moulding, etc. - Elsabe Nel-Harries

Moulds – The Basics
This will be a series of 3 workshops, of which you would be welcome to attend all or just one or two sessions. The first one deals with humpmolds (to drape slabs over), the second with hollow moulds (for slumping slabs into or to be used for slipcasting), and the third will be about simple two piece moulds (for use in slipcasting or press moulding). Once you have mastered the 2 piece mould it is very easy to start making more complex shapes.

Amaco Test Tile Tuesday
Amaco Test Tile Tuesday
This week, we are bringing you some tiles on which we fired the low-fire Crystaltex glazes (typically a cone 05 colorful spotted glaze series) all the way up to CONE 3. The effect is this lovely, fluid mutlicolor glaze that changes depending on which glaze you choose. How will they look at Cone 5? More fluid? Remember to always stilt your work or use soft brick when testing glazes outside of their firing range! Happy Testing! These CTL's in order from closest to furthest are CTL-9 Snapdragon, CTL-12 Mardi Gras, and CTL-71 Purple Blaze.
