Build a Wood Kiln Workshop
August 8 @ 2:00 pm - 6:00 pm$220
Saturday August 8th 2 pm to evening at Tyalgum
In this workshop we will help Lynda build a small wood fired kiln on Cherie’s property in Tyalgum.
This kiln will follow basic kiln design rules of firebox, firing chamber flue and chimney. It will be built from new refractory bricks that can withstand a hotface of 1280C plus a layer of mud and house bricks on the outside for extra insulation.
Lynda will explain the basic principles of flame based kilns as we lend a hand to cut bricks and put the kiln together.
You will need a respirator style dust mask, sturdy gloves and the willingness to help cut and cart. It rains a lot in Tyalgum, so please bring warm and waterproof clothing.
The kiln building will be followed by a relaxing meal ($10 to the host) and BYO by the campfire. You may camp overnight for a relaxed evening and pleasant morning and walk in the bush before heading home. If you choose, head on home after the build is finished!
You can book this workshop on an individual basis, or, attend ALL alternative firing workshops as a Masterclass and also receive extra hand outs and information about each kiln, firing, and glaze techniques. All Masterclasses are $950 (usually for 10 weeks), however this Masterclass covers all 6 workshops and saves $325!
Those in attendance for this workshop will have priority in booking for the firing of the wood kiln!
