Previous Event - Wood Fire Workshop with Kiln Opening Show & Sale

 Wood Fire Workshop with Kiln Opening Show & Sale -- September 26 - October 6, 2019

The BIG POT guys from Omaha are coming back! They are going to help us load and fire the three gigantic pots that Dan made at the Big Pot Workshop last May -- plus a lot of other pieces.

All potters and students are invited to participate in this Wood Fire Workshop. The registration fee is only $20. This is 'come-and-go-as-you-please' -- spend as much, or as little time as you like helping with the firing. (you will need to be present for unstacking on Saturday October 5 and to show and sell your work on Sunday October 6) Food and drink during the workshop are 'BYO pot luck'.

We will stack and fire both of our big wood kilns. Registered participants can bring pots to fire and sell at the Kiln Opening Show & Sale on Sunday October 6
