We’re super excited to add a NEW 8-WEEK class to the Late Spring session!!!

This IS a special class offered on Thursday evenings at THE SUNSET CANYON POTTERY STUDIO location.

May 2 - June 20


Join John Vela at Sunset Canyon Pottery where he will be teaching a full 8-Week Class dedicated to Glaze Formulation. This is ideal for folks with home studios who are ready to start making their own glazes from raw materials. The cost of the class is $320 and, unlike our other classes, includes all materials that will be used.

Students will learn how to follow glaze recipes, work with test tiles and explore how various fluxes, opacifiers, and colorants affect a glaze, and learn about how glazes react in reduction vs. oxidation firings. Students will work in groups based on their interest in mid-range or high-temperature firing.


  • This class does not include open studio access at Sunset Canyon or at Austin Pottery.  

  • Registering for this class does not guarantee spot in one of the regular classes at Austin Pottery in the summer session that will follow.

  • This class is currently planned for this late spring session ONLY.

Only a few spots left!
