Wood Fire Works
June 30, 2019 – July 13, 2019
This workshop focuses on making work to load and fire in Arrowmont’s new train kiln. Through demonstrations, discussion, and activities students learn how to successfully integrate their ideas from the studio into the firing. You will learn about the use of wild clays and place-based making philosophies as ways to create unique work. Participants are introduced to a variety of packing materials and creative loading strategies to create interesting unglazed surfaces with an emphasis on unifying material, form and surface. Post firing cold working and polishing are also covered. Open to all skill levels.
COURSE FEE: $1050
