Course description

Rob Linigen Glaze mixing for cone 6 (1220oC) workshops
Enrich your glaze surfaces with this 2 day workshop with Rob Linigen. Learn to mix your own
cone 6 glazes, and extend your range of colours and surfaces. You’ll learn some basic glaze
chemistry and practical testing methods to adapt and apply glazes to your clay and firing.
Troubleshoot your glaze problems and learn to apply glaze consistently and creatively.

Recommended clays for cone 6 (1220oC)
The clay we will be testing on is mainly Keanes Midfire No 6 which is fine white throwing
clay, good for tableware. Less than 1% absorption at full cone 6
We will also do some sampling on Keanes Lumina Midfire porcelain and the new Black
Midfire clay.
