I have been
giving workshops in pit firing, sawdust firing, and saggar
firing for almost 10 years now. Below is some information
regarding the workshop process and what is included if you are
interested in holding one at your facility.

describing the techniques and recipes, a demonstration
of terra sigillatta mixing, burnishing techniques.
saggar building & loading, pot preparation,
firing, raku/saggar, paper/saggar, unloading & post

fire brick is required for construction of a workshop
for pit firing include the loading & pot
placement process, firing the pit, unloading & post
fire pot treatment, and a full text workbook covering
all aspects of the pit firing process. The number of
pots an attendee can fire depends on workshop
attendance, and available pit size.

techniques and glazes used, and multiple firings of
different raku glazes & techniques, including copper
reduction glazes, and naked raku. The number of pots an
attendee can fire depends on workshop attendance, and
