Kids Ceramic Glazing – Ages 5 – 14 years

Friday 24th September 2021 | 3.30 pm – 4.30 pm

The Quarry Arts Centre is operated by a non-profit charitable trust supporting the arts in Northland for 41 years.

Glaze is a layer or coating used on bisque fired pottery (refer to examples below). The glaze is applied and then goes through another kiln firing process after the workshop at 984°C – 1,101°C.  The glaze materials when used properly are non-toxic.

Kids are encouraged to bring along one main piece that they have made in our school holiday or after-school programs.  If they do not have their own piece, we will supply items for the children to use.

Workshop includes:

1. Fundamentals and techniques of glaze application.

2. Planning colours, patterns and effects.

3. Glazing of one main piece per child.

4. Kiln firing (after the workshop).

5. Pick-up available 5 – 7 days after the workshop (sometimes sooner)

Cost to attend:

One child: $15.00

If you have more than two children attending, please contact us via email for a family discount: workshops@quarryarts.org
