Adult Glaze with Kerri Holmes
Thursdays / 7 – 9:30 pm – October 14 – November 4
Cost: $120 includes material
Explore surface decoration using ancient techniques. We will use coloured slips, stencils, and inlay to create patterns before firing the pottery. We also learn how to glaze pots with our studio glazes as well as with ready-to-paint glazes.
Layering glazes with varying degrees of control should bring surprising results. Our aim is to explore and delight in the gifts of the kiln!
