Touchstone Center for Crafts 1049 Wharton Furnace Road
Only 7 spaces are available so don't wait to sign up! The Touchstone Center for Crafts wood kiln is a two-chamber noborigama, built by Kevin Crowe in 1991. The first chamber is wood only and the second chamber is wood/soda. Each chamber is roughly 35 cubic feet. Each participant is encouraged to bring 7 cubic feet per share. A variety of slips and glazes will be prepared, with the formulas available to participants upon request. Firing will begin after loading and will continue for <48 hours. We will work around the clock in shifts of 1-2 people. If you would like a share but are unable to work your shifts, an additional $150 Stand-in Fee is required to have someone cover your shifts. All firings are led by Dan Tomcik, our studio and grounds manager, who is an accomplished ceramicist and well versed in firing this kiln. *For questions on how much work to bring, please contact Dan Tomcik directly at 412-773-2682 or email@example.com. NOTE: This is a NONREFUNDABLE SESSION. No refunds or credits will be issued, regardless of when the registration/payment is processed. A transfer for this session will be considered; if necessary, contact the office to discuss potential transfer options and associated fees. If Touchstone cancels this session, students will be able to transfer to another session (transfer fees will not apply in this instance) or receive a full refund.
