2 Day Alternative Firing (Bare Clay Techniques) Workshop:


Saturday September 21st and Sunday September 22nd, 2024

9:00am - 6:00pm (1 hour lunch break) Instruction will be given from 9:30am - 4:30pm


$300 per person (includes GST and PST).  Full payment due before August 20th.

Instructor: Audrey Stamm

Returning for another year of fun playing with fire,  we invite you to come and explore the world of alternative ceramic firing.  In this workshop we will discover the fundamentals of sagger, horsehair/feather, Naked Raku and obvara firing.  Through practical demonstrations and hands on experience, the student will go through all the steps necessary to create beautiful and artful surfaces for their work without glaze.  Beginner and intermediate students are welcome.



Each student is asked to bring 4 - 6 bisque fired pieces. Please speak with David or myself for any details on how to prepare your ware for this workshop. For smooth surface items it would be best if the item is either burnished, or prepared with terra sigilatta. For textured surfaces or sculptural pieces, the items can be left without any further treatments.

Note:  Best results for both sagger and obvara firing can be obtained using light or white bodied clays.
