About the event

Geared for all throwing levels, this class focuses on throwing and firing pots for a pit fire.    Week 1 we will throw pots, week 2 we will trim and embellish, week 3 we will prepare the pots for a pit fire and fire.

What is pit firing? Just as the name suggests, pit firing involves digging a out a pit in the ground (usually 2-2½ ft deep depending on how large your pieces are and how many you are firing), laying your clay pieces in the pit, covering them with combustible material, setting it ablaze and then allowing the fire to slowly burn down over time.  The end result produces beautiful pieces with amazing colors.

The fine print...

There are no make-ups or refunds after class has started.

Be on time, demonstrations will not be repeated

There is a studio cat, so if you are allergic, this isn't the class for you.

Pieces will be ready for pickup 2 weeks after the last class. Pieces not picked up within one month after the class ends will become the property of the studio.
