Lustre Firing Workshop

When you want to learn how to do something you’ll travel for it! And for an afternoon of  lustre firing Caya did exactly that! With 2hrs drive each way and on what felt like the coldest day in January!

This lovely lady was first introduced to lustre firing during a workshop demonstration in her local town and on closer inspection, looking with great interest at a pair of her mums earrings. (Pink stars lustred with gold edges). Her initial thoughts were that if she could be taught how to apply the lustre using simple techniques she could then go on to make and decorate pieces at home, this was all good and well until she realised nowhere close by could offer such a workshop…Until she came across The Pottery Parlour!

Here are the wonderful results from her workshop and with Vanessa’s guidance and technical advice these lovely pieces were decorated and fired in our kiln! She even managed to create a pallet wheel to help identify the colours and which bottles of lustre to buy when the time comes to do it alone!

Individual sessions such as this are available for anyone at any level whether it be just starting out or gaining knowledge to start your own projects.

“I was absolutely delighted with the course and the finished results which you kindly fired for me.  The afternoon course with Vanessa was perfect for me as I wanted to learn how to apply metalic lustres onto pieces that I had previously made and so the whole thing was tailored to what I wanted to achieve. Thank you so much for a very enjoyable 2 hours in your lovely pottery parlour”.
