The Glazing Workshop
Behind the Wheel: Glazing is a two hour workshop at Arran Street East for people who have completed one of our throwing classes or for those who have interest in decorating pots and working with glazes. You will be introduced to the techniques of glazing pots.
In a small class of 6, guided by our expert potters, you'll learn basic glazing techniques, to finish your first pots to perfection. We'll help you explore this ancient and meditative craft, and guide you towards finding out which elements you enjoy most.
Each one-off workshop follows the same format, running from 2pm to 4pm in our lovely Arran Street East studio in the heart of the Dublin Fruit and Vegetable Markets are. We provide all the materials you'll need.
All you need to do is pick a date that suits you and look forward to getting started working with clay.
