This class is for artists that already understand the basics of kiln forming and want to be supported learning or practicing new techniques beyond the basics of cutting and fusing. The session is organized as an artist's cooperative where each artists picks a technique and uses the five weeks time to learn and trial the new technique. Artists should expect to participate in mutually supportive peer critiques.

One Kiln fire is provided per session. Artists will need to coordinate as only one program can be run at a time per kiln. A MGW artist will unload/load kilns for students should we need to run multiple different programs.
Each artist is expected to provide specific programs to run for their firings, MGW is not responsible for firing program errors or unexpected resuilts. But we will help if you are trying to figure out appropriate program firing schedules.
