      Practical Glazemaking Class

      Learn how to make your own glazes, from scratch, without needing to know the Periodic Table and the Unity Formula.  In this hands-on class at The Clay Underground, you will learn about:

      • glaze ingredients
      • glaze terminology
      • glaze recipes
      • measuring
      • line blends
      • testing glazes
      • creating your own glaze variants

      During the class, students will create their own glaze tests based on pre-printed recipes with color variations.  Students will receive glazemaking materials and tools to keep (see below).  A deposit, either through EventBrite or by check, is required to register for the class (see below).

      The class date has recently been changed from August 10th to August 17th.  Please note the change!

      Attendees will recieve all of the following items to keep as part of the class:

      • 0.01 gram electronic glaze test scale
      • pocket calculator
      • notebook
      • rubber gloves and particulate mask
      • one or more base glaze recipes
      • one or more glaze test samples

      Vegan snacks will be served to the attendees between noon and 1pm.

      The class costs $90 for each attendee.  A $25 deposit is required to hold a place in the class, by August 9th, due to the requirement for the instructor to purchase class materials in advance.  The balance ($65) may be paid by check or cash on the day of the class.  Your deposit can be paid any of the following ways:

      • By credit card, here on Eventbrite
      • As part of a payment in full, here on Eventbrite
      • By check or cash delivered in person to Josh Berkus at The Clay Underground studio #11
      • By check delivered in person to Kevin, manager of The Clay Underground
      • By check mailed to Josh Berkus, 2166 Hayes St. Suite 200, San Francisco 94117 by July 31st.

      In the event that you are unable to attend the class due to an unexpected development, you may cancel by August 8th and receive a full refund of your deposit.  If you cancel after August 8th, your $25 deposit is non-refundable, unless this causes the entire class to be cancelled.  If you do not cancel, but simply don't show up for the class, refunds of any prepaid amount are negotiable depending on circumstances.

      The class wil be held in the glaze room of The Clay Underground, 187 Eddy.  You will need to buzz the doorbell to be let in.

      Students should wear old, comfortable clothing; their clothing may become permanently stained during the class.

      Practical Glazemaking will only be held if there are at least four registrations, with deposit, by August 9th. If there are insufficient registrations, the class will be cancelled and all attendees will receive a full refund.

      Warning: this class involves working with chemicals known to cause harm in California.  Safety equipment will be supplied to all attendees, and its use will be required for the class.
