What you need to know!
Clay has a timescale of its own! As you will learn, we need to be respectful of this to ensure our creations stay as they are meant to.
We will do our very best to dry and fire your work in order for you to glaze them in the final session (week 4) however if we feel your work is not ready to fire within this timescale, we will offer you the opportunity to return to glaze. If you are unable to make our additional session, we will oxide or glaze them for you.
Background...about clay & firing: Clay can sometimes take weeks to dry safely and evenly and this process must be controlled in order to ensure weaknesses and cracks don't appear. If items are fired too soon, this can end up in spectacular explosions in the kiln and more importantly, potential loss of work. So naturally, we take every precaution to ensure this doesn't happen.
Most of our intended creations will be smaller and more lightweight so we anticipate a smooth transition. PLease also be aware that after glazing, items can take up to 3 weeks to be glaze fired and ready for collection. REST ASSURED, they will all be ready before Christmas!
