Handbuilding a form for the pit!

Location: PyreWorks Studio, Point Cook.

In this workshop we will be creating a form to place into the pit firing on October 21. It can be a figurine or a pot using the pinch pot or coiling methods or a combination.

As they will not be getting glazed, they will not be suitable for food. The clay used will be a choice of BRT, terracotta or earthenware paperclay.

Bring a snack for afternoon tea - tea and coffee provided.

Clay, use of tools and equipment is included, bisque firing is $5 per kilo.

Saturday October 21 late afternoon/evening 4 hours $50

Pit firing session

Location: PyreWorks Studio, Point Cook.

Place your pre-made and bisqued form made last session into the pit fire with combustibles that will change its colour! We will build the fire together and you will be able to wrap your work in your choices of combustibles and watch the fire as it burns. The pieces will need to cool overnight so you can collect your piece the next day, newly pyreborn!

Limited spots!

All clay, underglaze, glazes and use of tools and equipment are included Firing is $5/kilo.
