What's Included

Pottery students know well that “Christmas day” feeling, when the kiln lid rises to reveal finished pots. It also happens with the first sight of your latest batch of glaze test tiles! For intermediate or advanced students, making your own glazes is a practical step forward. It’s much cheaper long-term than buying commercially, and the initial recipe-testing is this instructor’s idea of a good time. We will cover basic background knowledge, raw materials, glaze recipes, the gram scale, and safe mixing procedures. Bring a bound notebook (rather than a perforated one) for your notes and future glaze recipes. There will be handouts also.

About This Organizer

The PFAC is a vibrant organization that serves as educator and catalyst for awareness and understanding of visual arts – through the art within our five gallery spaces and the educational programs we provide for adults and children.  Not being collections-bound, we are constantly changing our exhibitions – and there is an energy and freedom in what we do that excites the senses and illuminates the world like no other art center in the region. We create art every day in our Studio Art School that offers classes and workshops taught by master artists each year.  We reach children through a comprehensive program of in-school, on-site and outreach opportunities.
