Fong Choo Workshop May 17-19, 2023

Join us for a 3-day hands-on play date with clay n’ glaze! Through the magic of glaze play, you’ll be introduced to unorthodox methods of glazing your work. We’ll explore low fire, highly fluxed, reactive, and crystal glazes.

For example, learn how to pair Mayco’s Jungle Gems Cone 04-06 crystal glazes with Mid-Range SW series temperature Cone 5-6 glazes. All these techniques are designed to create a dazzling palette of finishes and these glazing methods can be used in bowls, shallow dishes, teacups, cylinders, and vases!
