Looking for unique pottery classes in Sydney? Learn how to glaze ceramics at this hands-on Glebe workshop.

This class is an introduction to glazing and teaches you all you need to know to successfully glaze your bisque-fired work.

What you'll learn:

  • What a glaze is and how they're made
  • How to choose a glaze
  • How to prepare your bisque-fired work for glazing
  • How to use underglaze and decorate your ceramics

Throughout the class, you'll learn a range of glazing techniques — including dipping, painting and pouring to decorate your beautiful ceramics!

Please note: the ceramic piece you'd like to glaze in this class will need to be bisque fired before you can glaze it. Bisque firing is the low-temperature firing done first to stabilise your ceramic piece for safe handling and decoration/glazing before the final glaze firing at a higher temperature.

You are welcome to bring your own glazes. Be sure to know which type of clay you have used so we can match it to the correct Earthenware/Midfire/Stoneware or Porcelain glaze.
