Train And Retain
October 4, 2020 – October 10, 2020
The focus of this workshop is on firing the train wood kiln. Students will gain knowledge of systematic material testing and experimentation. Through each stage of the process, you will document your work through kiln logs and reference photographs. After the firing, the class will examine the outcomes and reflect on the results as a group. Discussions include glaze application, loading techniques and firing strategies. Participants should bring cone 10 stoneware or porcelain bisque ware pieces from home and be prepared to learn and burn. Open to all skill levels.
COURSE FEE: $600
