Have a go at Pit Firing ceramics in the garden at Westbury Arts Centre

Westbury Arts CentreTwo-Day Pit Firing Course

Day 1: the workshop will start with a day creating a series of pots and objects that will be bisque fired ready for next week’s pit firing.

Day 2: The pit will be dug and the objects will be placed in the pit ready for firing along with a mixture of oxides and organic materials. But if any budding potters out there have some fired bisque already that they would like to put in the pit then come along, bring your banana skins, dried manure etc.  to put in the pit…fingers crossed for good weather.  Julie leFevre will show you this traditional and surprising way to fire your work.

When: Saturday 16th August 10 – 4.00 Saturday 23rd August 6 -9pm
