Anagama Wood Firing Workshop with John Baymore April 1 â€“ 5, 2015; Unloading on April 12, 2 015 SCER084 Sharon Arts Campus of the New Hampshire Institute of Art, Sharon, NH Come fire your ceramic work in our new anagama kiln! This past summer, we built an anagama kiln on the Sharon Arts Center campus. This past fall, we fired the kiln for the first time and achieved wonderful results. This spring we are excited to offer an immersive workshop. The Anagama Workshop is an opportunity to learn the intricacies of wood-firing through hands-on experience with a large anagama. With the guidance of master wood-fire artist, John Baymore, students will prepare, load, fire, and unload the anagama kiln. John will also lead various presentations and discussions about the process and history of wood-firing. The first two days of the workshop will focus on glazing, wadding, and loading the ware into the anagama, with consideration of the forms going in and the path of the flame during the firing. The kiln will then be fired in shifts around the clock for three days as it reaches 2400 degrees. Participants will serve on 3 shifts at various times of the firing. As the firing progresses, discussion will focus on what changes are happening in the flow of the kiln and with the ware inside. Unloading the kiln, there will be review and reflection on the results and impact of the making, stacking and firing. Participants in the Anagama Workshop will bring work to the kiln and be able to have approximately 8 square feet of ware in the firing. For those that want to have work in the anagama kiln but do not want to take the workshop, there is limited space available. If you are interested in either level of participation (the 5-day Anagama Workshop, or having work in the firing), or for detailed workshop information and costs, contact: Maureen Mills, Chairperson, NHIA Ceramic Dept., firstname.lastname@example.org or (603) 836-2565. http://www.nhia.edu/assets/NHIA630CEwtr-spr15web.pdf New Hampshire Institute of Art Continuing Education Office 148 Concord Street Manchester, NH 03104-4858
