Ideal for those with their own studio or place to make work – you must have prior wood firing experience.


Participants will work as a cooperative community striving for a shared experience of learning with an emphasis on safety and communication. The firing is approximately 200-hours, schedules for eight days, the firing may conclude earlier. The wood kiln is located at a remote site, approximately 8 miles outside of town. Students should be prepared to fire in all weather conditions.


Outside of Class Requirements


  • Mandatory attendance of first-class meeting- Tuesday March 26 at 6pm (both class and firing only participants)
  • 10- 15 hours of scheduled preparation. Tasks include splitting wood, stacking wood, and other activities
  • 3-4 six-hour stoking shifts
  • participation at kiln load
  • participation at kiln unload and kiln site cleanup


We ask that students comply with all of our health and safety guidelines. A student waiver will be issued during the first kiln meeting with the most up-to-date guidance.



The Firing Only option often fills up quickly! But no matter how long the wait list is, it is difficult to fill a canceled spot if it is too close to the firing, simply because waitlisted folks no longer have adequate time to make work for the firing. 


UPDATED cancelation policy for Firing Only:

- ​Participants may cancel and request a full refund, less an administrative fee of $25,  up to six full weeks before the scheduled loading. 

- No refunds or credits can be issued for cancelations made less than 6 full weeks before loading. However, you are welcome to have another experienced wood firing participant take over your spot, with the wood fire resident's approval.
