Content of the masterclass

In the morning I will tell you everything about the process: what to do and not to do with the saggar, the colorants and the combustibles:

  • The kind of work you can fire;
  • Using terra sigillata or not (difference);
  • Colorants: natural and oxides;
  • How to apply the colorants to your work;
  • What combustibles to use;
  • Filling the saggar;
  • Finishing the work (information)

The afternoon starts with a demonstration on how to prepare your work for the saggar. After that you start prepare your work for the saggar. At the end you fill the saggar with your work and combustibles and take it home. You must have access to a kiln where you can fire your saggar (unless the location of the masterclass is willing to fire them).
All the colorants and combustibles will be available.

Participants must bring a (fired) saggar and bisque fired work to the masterclass.
