Please note that glazing sessions will be available every Saturday, starting on April 1st.
The Shaw Street Pottery Glazing Sessions are to glaze bisque pieces that have not been made in our studio. Whether you are a home potter or a pro ceramist with limited glaze colours at your disposal, our glazing sessions will give you access to our wide selection of colours. Enjoy over 12 underglaze colours and over 35 glaze colours to apply to your bisque ware. It's sure to expand your palette by many folds!
Should you need guidance with glazing, we will be happy to show you how to brush them onto your works of art. Each session includes the glazes, underglazes, and **firing of your pieces glazed in the session/workshop.
Limit of 4 potters per session, price is per person.
Our glazes are all for cone 6 stoneware clay as it is the only type of clay we fire. If you don't know what kind of clay you have, please take a photo of the product label and email it to us before booking your session.
Note that Shaw Street Pottery has tested the glazes onto Tucker's cone 6 smooth white stoneware, and Tucker's cone 6 CCSS speckled clay. Potters are encouraged to make their own test tiles if using a different type of cone 6 clay than the ones mentioned above. Yes, we can help you with that process too!
**Firing included in glazing sessions is one kiln shelf (15'' diameter) and pieces have to be no taller than 5''. Additional pieces or taller pieces can be fired at the regular fee listed on the 'Firing Service' page https://shawstreetpottery.ca/collections/shaw-street-pottery-studio-services/products/firing-service
