Saturday 18 February, 10.00am-1pm

Cost: £48 full / £43 concession (includes all materials)

Join Potter Fiona Shannon as she explores the world of glaze chemistry in this one-off masterclass at Flowerfield Arts Centre Portstewart. Why do metal oxides and stains react different with the same glaze? How do changes in firing temperatures and atmospheres in the kiln effect the glazes? In this masterclass we will answer these questions as well as combine various materials to mix up a glaze together from scratch and play with oxides and other colorants to explore how they will react to glaze. You will complete a number of small test tiles which will be fired to be collected at a later date.

This masterclass will benefit art teachers, art students and amateur potters. Please bring apron and wear clothes that you don’t mind getting a little messy.

Proudly presented in association with NI Science Festival.
