Wood Fire Workshop 9/28

from 195.00

This one day workshop begins at 9:30am in Accord New York.  It is an introduction to the wood firing process by acclaimed artist Jeff Shapiro and a chance to make and fire work upstate NY in a wood firing gas kiln.

Jeff will start with a general description of the two wood firing kilns on the property.  We will discuss loading, glazing, and firing options for the wood kilns. The remainder of the morning will be comprised of discourse and demonstrations and then participants will begin working with six pounds of clay from the studio to make a single piece for the wood firing. 

Jeff’s wife Hinako will prepare lunch and there will be a discussion about the relationship of food and vessel. The afternoon will be utilized to complete the piece started in the morning. The day ends at 4:30pm with a final discussion and tea.
