Glaze Making Made Simple Classes
The goal at Potters’ Place is to make every the best potter they can be. So, here is the newest class toward that goal.

We will explore glaze making. The studio has needed more translucent glazes for some time. So, we will be making our own & students will learn the process of glaze making and decide the glaze colors. One afternoon/week we will meet for an instructional & hands on glaze class.

Cost: This class is free to all students who have paid their monthly fees. Anyone else is $50.00 per glaze class.

Students are welcome to bring other glazes for consideration. After the translucent are made, we will branch off to other glazes. Potters’ Place will have the best selection of glazes for our students in Houston!
