This will be the last pit fire at this location in our 9 x 4 ft pit that has room for aproximately 80 pots. Your $15 firing charge per pot includes instruction beginning at 12pm, handouts on how to pit fire at home, and use of various pit materials.

By having pots fired you'll learn how to construct, fill, arrange, and run your own pit fire, and the effects of varying organic materials.
FEE: Free To attend and watch but the Pit Fire Build only goes from 12-2 (latest) before we light it. $15 per pot fired in the pit. Bring your own bisque or purchase pots from our offerings at the Firing (in addition to your pre-reserved firing fee per pot) Only 80 pots accepted to the fire, so pre-purchase fees to reserve space.
EVENT TIME: April 22 (Earthday!) @ 12pm to build the Pit, decorate your pots, and start the fire around 2pm. Come back Sunday April 23 from 4-6pm for the Pit Fire Dig event to see pots come from the pit, transformed in to organic artwork. To have pots fired you'll want to arrive at 12pm on April 22. Ceramic Molds will be for sale for $1- $10 per mold April 22 12-2 and April 23 4-6pm.
SKILL LEVEL: No prior experience with primitive firing methods or pottery necessary. To participate, purchase a firing fee and attend Sat. morning for the instruction during the Pit Fire Build.
STUDENTS BRING: Any organic combustable material that you would like to add to the pit, including cow/herbivore dung, feathers, leaves, oily (organic) matter such as onion or vegetable skins, chemicals researched to produce primitive color. Mondaes Mudd will supply the pit's fuel and various materials to fire near your pots, as well as pre-bisque pots to purchase if desired.
