This is a 2 day course to make and learn about the exciting process of smoke firing. Day 1 (Saturday April 4th) 10am-3pm This will be based at our studio in Poynton and will involve the techniques of press moulding and coiling to create three small moon jar shaped pots. These will then be burnished and bisque fired. Day 2 (Saturday April 25th) 10am-3pm This will be based in higher Poynton and you will spend the morning preparing your pots for the firing using a range of materials to achieve different finishes. Whilst the pots are in the kiln lunch will be provided as part of the course fee. Then once out of the fire your pots will be polished and ready to take home.
