Annual Salt Fire Workshop

Fall Salt Fire Workshop

TBD (based on kiln rebuild)

Beginner - Advanced, 18+

Instructors: Gary Carstens and Tab Link

Join us for a salt firing in the catenary chamber of the noborigama at Adamah Clay Studios in Dodgeville, WI. Bring up to 100 bisque-fired pots and expect to take a shift or two stoking the kiln.

The workshop includes a good number of studio glazes, in-depth instruction, group problem solving, lodging at the nearby retreat center, and meals which will begin with Friday breakfast and will conclude with Sunday breakfast. We would like for you to participate in a Thursday night group potluck to get to know each other. Please bring a dish to serve 5 to ten people.
