Description: Learn the basics of firing your own kiln in this one-day workshop. We will learn firing methods for an electric kiln and a cone 10 gas reduction firing. In addition to checking temperature and atmosphere, we will cover different styles of kilns, firing speeds, electrical requirements, and basic troubleshooting. 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.

12 – 1 pm: Lunch on your own
1 – 4 pm: Electric kiln loading, programming, firing, trouble-shooting, and continuation of reduction firing
