There will be a kiln building workshop in Winnipeg in June…

kiln building…where we will build a small (36cuft) bourry-box kiln for short glaze-firings with an extended throat arch for woodfire effects at the University of Manitoba. The kiln will reach temperature within one day, but can also be fired for an extended period of time to get more ash-effects. The workshop is planned to contain the inaugural firing. The number of participants is limited to 12. We expect great interest so early booking is recommended. For detailed informations please contact Mary Ann Steggles

The kiln design is based pretty much on Steve Harrisons "Laid back woodfiring" approach. In Steve's words: »...This is an excellent way to get those heavy ash deposits without spending days on doing it. You don’t even have to wear a head band or chop the sleeves off your T shirt to get there (although you can if you want to). This is the great heresy. Laid back wood firing, start in the morning, finish in the night, go to bed the same day that you got up. Live a normal live, make beautiful objects and enjoy your firing. You can even do it in the city because there is so little smoke or pollution...«

 Informations about the workshop he did at my place can be found here. That was in 2009 and I'm still firing this kiln. It made a big difference compared with my old kiln and had a huge impact on the way I developed my work over the last decade. There is a DVD available about this workshop – a weak compansation for all of you who might not be able to make it to Canada.
