Teaching

Isaac has taught ceramics classes to a wide range of students, from beginners in community-based projects, people with disabilities in long-term ceramic studio employment, and focused classes for the more experienced maker. These teaching opportunities have been delivered in both long and short term classes covering the full range of popular ceramic techniques, plus weekend workshops focused on firing methods and demonstrations at public events.

Woodfiring Workshop

This workshop is designed to teach the process of woodfiring in a collaborative setting.

We will first spend 1 day treating the ceramics with glazes specialised for the atmosphere of a woodfiring.

Once the glazes dry, the ceramics are then loaded into the kiln over 3 days.

The kiln is then fired.  This process takes 3 full days of students and teacher working in shifts to get our kiln to target temperature.

The kiln will then cool for 5 days before finally, all of our hard work will be revealed as the kiln is unloaded.
