Join us at The Potters’ Studio in Berkeley for an intensive introductory course to soda firing with hands-on training in loading and firing work, making wadding and cone packs, and general safety and care for equipment. Saturday we will discuss clay bodies and firing methods to achieve various aesthetics, apply flashing slips and glazes, and load the kiln. The kiln is fired all day Sunday and unloaded on Wednesday evening. Each person is given one cubic foot of space in the soda firing, so bring CONE 10 bisqueware. Cups are ideal sizes for the stack.
There are 12 spots total, but future workshops will run every 3-4 months.
Price for this workshop:
Current PS Members/Students: $200 | Others: $225.
