Professional Kiln Class with Kirstie Rea
This 4 day class will allow students to investigate different kiln forming techniques while also developing ideas for new work. A series of projects will cover a range of processes including fusing, fusing thick to thin, slumping, working with powders and frits and working with glass tints. Firing schedules and kiln usage will be discussed in detail.
This class is designed to cater for artists who wish to develop their skills in kiln forming processes and is ideal for returning CIT students.
