Course focusing on making your own low-temperature ceramic glazes.
In this particular course, you will learn how to formulate or modify the aesthetics of lowtemperature glazes.
Low-temperature ceramic objects often need a "cover". which is called a glaze, required to make the ceramic object water-resistant and aesthetically conform to what is desired.
What is needed to make a glaze? What frits and raw materials to combine to make it? How to modify a ready-made glaze? And how to proceed from test to test to achieve the desired effect?
The teacher Claudio Gardenghi, an expert with over forty years of experience in some of the most important ceramic colour factories, will introduce participants to the world of lowtemperature glazes, also giving space for some personal research.
In fact, thanks to the small number of participants, it will be possible both to work on bases provided by the organisation and to analyse, replicate or correct glazes deriving from participants' own research ("as long as they are suitable for low temperature").
All results will then be presented and shared with the class.
