Join us for a hands-on play date with clay! Bring your open mind, enthusiasm, and curiosity! Choose your form: vase, cup, cylinder, plate, bowl—whatever you desire! Individual interaction and encouragement will be given through the bisque firing.
Through the magic of glaze play, learn Fong’s unorthodox methods of glazing. Learn to use commercial low fire and mid range glazes, firing them all to cone 6 oxidation.
A dazzlin’ palette of glaze techniques: Luscious. Random. Runny. Drippy. Marbly. Amazing. Embrace the run! Learn hybrid crystalline catch trays, drip trays, wads, and stilts. Remove glaze runs using diamond discs on the wheel, die grinders and diamond pads. Learn to glaze using a spray gun. Create your own teapot! Time permitting a presentation on making dyed reed cane handles. Pack some fun! We hope to see you there!
