My porcelain workshops

First we see a slide show with the work from 10 porcelain potters. Then I show a lot of little tips and tricks you have to know to be able to throw this difficult and beautiful material . How do we avoid worps and cracks? We train throwing really thin to get translucensy, we work with shellac and underglazes.
Other subjects will be : Lamps , underglazes , gold , colouring porcelain .
This workshop is for advanced students and proffessionals, who want to try porcelain and porcelain potters who want to learn new tricks. It'll be exciting!
