Train And Retain

October 4, 2020 – October 10, 2020

Anne Beyer

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.


Anne Beyer is an adjunct professor of Ceramics at the Paducah School of Art and Design. She earned her BFA from Albion College and an MFA from Indiana University. Beyer spent the years in between firing a variety of wood kilns. She is currently designing and building an anagama at her home studio in the countryside.
