Great for art educators! Learn the basics of firing your own kiln in this one-day workshop. We will learn firing methods for an electric bisque 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 NCC’s studio technicians, who fire multiple kilns every month. This workshop does not authorize NCC students to fire our kilns independently, but is helpful for educators and anyone hoping to become an NCC studio artist.

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