What is glaze? What makes a glaze durable?  Is this food safe?  What are the best ways to apply glaze?  In this workshop you will learn the basics of what glaze is, how it works, how to apply it and how to start making adjustments to ready mixed glazes.  We will run three glaze experiments: layering glaze, combining ready mixed glazes and adjusting color.  This class will offer you a few ways to play with your studio's glazes even if you don't have access to a glaze mixing lab.
