Great for art educators!
So, you’ve read your kiln manual but still have questions about firing? Worry no more! In this one-day workshop, you will learn the basics of firing and maintaining your own kiln. Covering basic information about kiln styles, firing speeds, kiln requirements, and firing temperatures, this class will have you walking away more confident in your abilities to become the next kiln master. The workshop is led by teaching artists who fire multiple kilns each month. This workshop does not authorize NCC students to fire our kilns independently, but is helpful for educators and anyone aspiring to become an NCC studio artist. Basic clay knowledge is preferred.
