Events

We offer a variety of events for ages 8 and up, and all experience levels are welcome.
Our instructors come from diverse backgrounds and offer students a range of approaches to the
creative ceramic process. We offer instruction primarily in throwing and handbuilding, but occasionally we
will have special class sessions be able to offer you other types of art classes such as mosaics, watercolor, and printmaking.

A 36 cubic foot Train Wood Kiln

Instructor: Trevor Dunn & Chuck McGee
Mighty Mud is building a 36 cubic foot Train wood kiln. We suggest that people build and participate according to their comfort levels and physical ability. We will meet the first day at 9 a.m. to plan and organize the schedule and finish at 5 p.m. The following days may begin earlier and end later as Trevor and Chuck will put in long days. Workshop participants are free to put in as much time as they wish, but are also free to only work in the morning, to come at lunchtime or work in the afternoons. It will be flexible and we’ll try and organize that on the first day.

On that first day we will also decide the best night for Chuck and Trevor to present their ceramic work to all of the participants in person and in a slide presentation.

Participants will help with all aspects of the kiln building. This workshop will be as “hands-on” as you want. If all goes well we will fire the kiln at the end of the workshop. If you wish to fire with us please bring bisqueware ready for cone 10 firing. Glazes will be provided.

Raku

Instructor: Megan Schefter
All ages and experience levels are welcome to participate in this event. This could be fun for the family, kids love the Raku process; or it could be a great “date night” event. The immediacy of Raku firings allow you to take home a beautiful piece of pottery for your home that night, but these decorative pieces are not food safe.
