Fun with RAKU

Ted Camp   B-A
Thursdays 1:00 – 4:00

Raku has become a popular way of fast-firing to about 1860 degrees. Students will produce work by hand building or wheel throwing and will apply glazes to their bisqueware prior to class. During class, those pieces will be fired and they will participate in removing their work from the kilns while the glazes are molten, and place them in smoking chambers where the glazes will develop a variety of surface and

Working With Glaze

Ted Camp   I-A
Thursdays 9:30 – 12:30

Interested in making your own glazes? This course explores the chemical constituents of glazes in non-technical ways. Knowing what a chemical contributes to the glaze formula is critical in choosing chemicals that provide the surface or color a student is looking for. Another important area of concern is that the glaze needs to be food-safe and durable in its use. Students will receive a special computer glaze calculator, which will help them to see when a glaze is properly fluxed to produce a durable surface and will help them to know what it will look like before the glaze is made. Students will make glazes and adjust them to produce desired results.

Wheel Throwing – Morning

Ted Camp B-A
Wednesdays 9:30 – 12:30

Wheel throwing has attracted students who like symmetrically round objects and has challenged them to learn how to control the development of a particular form. The basic steps to throwing will be the focus for beginners while more advanced students will be challenged by more complex forms and techniques for achieving greater scale. Demonstrations will repeatedly show the techniques, which will lead to the students’ success, through practice. Students will also explore the myriad ways to apply glazes to their pieces and experience the differences between mid-fire (cone 6 electric) and hi-fire (gas fired cone 10 reduction) glazes. Bring your own tools or purchase a beginner’s kit at our front desk. Includes 25 lbs of clay, firing & in studio glazing.
