What this course will cover:
1) How gas kilns fire: starting from the basic functions of firing a gas
    kiln; types of kilns; techniques in creating leopard spots in shino
    glazes; and specific firing techniques to create soda ash leopard
    spots.
           Note: This workshop is about firing in a Geil Kiln. We will not
         be giving out the formula for Leopard Spot Shino because of
         how it is produced as it has to be produced in a controlled
         environment. We will only be selling the mixed glaze.

2) Myths and misconceptions about carbonizing soda ash to form
    leopard spots.
