Event description

Description

A chance to try new ceramic techniques in a rural setting and to meet new artists and makers.

This is a day-long event which involves digging a small pit for controlled ceramics firing. Blanks will be provided to fire. Led by Nita Nathwani, ceramacist and contemporary artist who has over a decade of experience working with clay, leading demonstrations and workshops.

Because pit-firing is a process that takes time and teamwork to set up, it lends itself perfectly to a community effort. It's a fun and unusual creative process that most makers don't get to try. The unique communal effort also brings together like-minded people and provides both a creative and social opportunity. Food and refreshments provided.

Making and Materials

Materials will be provided for making ceramics work. You may also bring a small number of your own work to fire, preferably bisque. We recommend using grogged stoneware for the best effect. If you plan on doing this or want advice on materials please get in touch. The work will take 24 hours to fire and cool, arrangements for collection can be made on the day. Contact us to enquire about overnight accommodation.
