Experimenting with Kiln-Forming in Project Based Workshops

Once a week we can join together in a kiln-forming workshop to each make the selected project. Each project has a goal and learning objectives that can be met within a two-and-a-half-hour time frame. Everyone will work on the same designated project for the week and it will be intriguing to watch the different approaches. So, reserve your spot for a Thursday night of Kiln-Forming Fun.  

No Kiln-Forming experience is necessary but it will probably help.  As with the classes, all fusing and slumping are completed post-class.  Project pieces will be ready by Thursday of the following week.

Class size is limited to a maximum of 6 participants.  Please bring a sketchbook & writing utensil.  N-95 mask will be used for all kiln casting.  Protective eyewear and closed-toed shoes.
