Registration: Register by contacting Robyn on 0274 946800. We need to know how many people are intending to participate – we can accommodate 12 max so book early! Please note all participants are expected to help with set up and clean up which is normally quite involved. 😉

What to bring:

Bisque-fired pieces, we are looking at being able to fire between 1 – 5 for everyone (depending on the size). There may be one more bisque kiln before Saturday, if you have suitable pieces not yet bisqued please contact Robyn on number above to find out.

Apron and old towel

Please wear closed shoes and long sleeves/trousers – should be low-flammable fabrics (natural fibres). 

Newspaper – we need quite a lot for the reductions.

Protective eye wear (safety glasses)

If you can, bring your own large metal vessel with a lid, suitable for having shavings and fire in it, something like a metal rubbish bin or a very large pot with a lid. Essential if you have fragile work!

If anyone has access to a welders’ protective mask and could bring it please let us know – contact Robyn on number above

Some snack food to share for afternoon tea, keep it simple.

If you are interested but this date/time won’t work for you for whatever reason, do let us know that you would like to participate in future events of this type!
