Woodfire Workshop with Suvira McDonald
9am - 2pm Sat 11 Jan 2020
Studio Suvira

INSIDE AN ANAGAMA : filling & firing a traditional wood kiln

The workshop will include a studio tour and basic information about kiln operations including wood preparation and a detailed visit inside the (empty) kiln.  Suvira will take participants through a detailed discussion and demonstrations where many examples of fired work will be presented, showing the different ash and colour effects of the wood fired process.

*During summer the firings are on hold but there will be clay provided for participants to prepare a piece which will be fired during the 2020 Easter firing. This will involve preparing clay especially suited for wood fire mark making. Participants will have the option to visit the studio during the three-day firing over the Easter period of 2020 (date for firing to be confirmed) and then collect the fired pieces.

*Sumptuous morning tea provided during discussion time, please let us know if you have any dietary requirements.
