Hello everyone, We are doing a fundraiser class for the studio with @ceramicmaterialsworkshop. They have generously agreed to teach a class for our community and part of the proceeds will go to the studio to help us stay afloat during the pandemic. If you want to take this time to learn more about your craft, this is your opportunity. It helps support our community and is a great way to get to know more about the medium that you love. If you have your own studio or work somewhere else and are dying to learn how to create and batch your own glazes in your studio or ours, this will help you do that. So if you're ready to take a deeper dive into the chemistry of ceramics, please join us for this course. There are several ways to participate, see description of course below. Link is in bio.
This is a 12 week glaze course for those that want to take a deep dive into glaze chemistry. This is the same course taught at Alfred University and Harvard University by Ceramics Materials Workshop. In this course, students will learn the following:
Ceramic materials: their chemistry, origins, properties and functions
The tenants of heat and temperature as related to ceramic performance
Glaze formulas, analysis and performance
Glaze flaws: identification and correction
The function of ceramic oxides and color
There will be over 20 hours of lectures online as well as 6 hours of live discussions with the instructors to go over tests and labs. There will also be readings and instructor's notes provided at the end of term. Students will have 12 weeks to take the class, if they do not complete it in that time, they have the option of extending access via Patreon with CMW. This class is a collaboration fundraiser for Gasworks NYC. To help keep our community studio up and running, we will be offering 3 ways to take this class.
Tier 1: Take the class, make and fire your own tests (or don't) at home. $550
Tier 2: Take the class, do your tests and labs at home and we will fire them at our studio: $650.*
Tier 3: Take the class and we will provide you with all of the materials and equipment to do your testing at home and fire your tests for you: $775 - 2 hours ago
