Firing the Train Kiln
October 6, 2019 – October 12, 2019
This workshop focuses on how to fire a wood kiln. Students should bring cone 10 porcelain or stoneware bisque pottery to class and be prepared to learn how to slip, glaze, wad, load and fire a Train Kiln. Discussions include clay bodies, kiln design, wood chemistry, the end phase, and the shutting down of a wood firing. As the kiln cools, demonstrations focus on how to make work for different areas within the kiln. No prior wood firing experience is necessary. Open to all skill levels.
COURSE FEE: $600
