Pottery: Pit Firing
TWO DAY outdoor pottery event - an overnight Pit Firing with Studio Ranj
Saturday July 22, 2023
through Sunday July 23, 2023
15:00 - 18:00 (GMT Standard Time)
This event has ended.
Learn the fun, exciting, and unpredictable outdoor pottery decoration technique with Studio Ranj. Spread across two afternoons this weekend, Ranj will give you two hand-thrown vessels and teach you how to decorate them using reused and foraged combustible items (sawdust, coffee grounds, seaweed) which will leave behind beautiful organic patterns on the unglazed clay after firing. After preparing your pots in the studio, you will be shown how to fire them in an outdoor pit by lighting a bonfire and watching it burn as the sun sets.
The following afternoon you will join Ranj for the big reveal; sifting through the ashes of the fire to retrieve your pieces, cleaning them up, discussing the results, and sealing them before taking them home.
Make an afternoon of it, grab a drink and some friends - see you out there!
Saturday 22nd July - 3.00 - 5.30pm
Sunday 23rd July - 4.00 - 6.00pm
