Raku & Soda Firing

New! Soda / Woodfire Kiln Workshop
June 8th

Beginning Saturday June 8th at 10 AM
Introduction to Soda Firing, glazing and wadding pieces. When everything is glazed and wadded we will load the kiln and begin the firing.

Participants are welcome to stay as long as you want and help with the firing process. Firing continues into Sunday, feel free to stop by!

Price: $275 per person

This workshop is for anyone who wants to have an introduction to soda firing or to expand their soda firing knowledge. We will learn how to load the soda kiln: no kiln loading experience necessary.

Soda firing is an atmospheric firing that produces flashes of color, a textured orange peel surface, and reacts in a variety of ways with different slips, glazes and clay bodies. The soda mixture is introduced into the kiln near the end of the firing. The soda vaporizes and is carried on the flame throughout the kiln. Wherever the flame travels, the soda travels and reacts with the pieces in the kiln to create a glazed or flashed surface.

Participants are encouraged to bring 10-15 pieces of cone 10 bisque-ware.

Pre-registration preferred. Deadline to sign up is three days prior to the first class.

See studio policies regarding cancellation.
