The Hot Seat - Kiln-Firing 101 (Electric kiln only)
Date: February 10
Time: 1 pm - 4 pm
Instructor: NCC Teaching Artist
Description: 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 technicians who fire multiple kilns each month. This workshop does not authorize NCC students to fire our kilns independently, but is helpful for educators and anyone aspiring to become an NCC studio artist.
