CERAMICS WORKSHOP WEEK 1: Salt Kiln Building
A team oriented, hands-on workshop that leads participants through the design and construction of a 44 cubic foot salt kiln. Over five days of building, participants learn the fundamentals of kiln design as applied to all gas kilns, burner design and function, purpose and use for each brick type, and bricklaying techniques. Discussions of kiln design and enhancing atmospheric firing techniques are included in this rare opportunity to be a part of a kiln build on the Munson-Williams and PrattMWP campus. Participants walk away from this workshop with the functional knowledge and blueprints necessary to build their own kiln.
