A three day making workshop and retreat at East Creek. A camping, cabins, food, and clay experience. Fire 3 CF in the NWWFC pre-conference anagama firing with guests from around the region. During our workshop, you'll see demos by Joe Robinson and invited guests, and you'll have the opportunity to make up to 6 cubic feet of work included with your workshop fee, including bisque. Extra space is available at an extra charge. During the firing, we'll also conduct pit and raku firings, which you'll be invited to participate in. Each participant will select 2 bags of clay included with the workshop- extra clay can br brought or bought if needed.

NWWFC, the NW Wood Firing Conference, will take place June 4-6, 2020 in Newberg. There will be demos, 10+ concurrent exhibitions, and a keynote by Jack Troy. Artists from around the region will come to fire and to observe the unloading of the anagama. NWWFC.com

**Note: Wood firing is a shared work process, but as a workshop participant you can come to as much or as little of the firing as you'd like. This workshop is designed so that if you have a 9-5, you don't need to take much or any time off to get all the juicy bits. You'll need to make sure your pots get to East Creek by 2/29, and arrange to pick them up on March 14, but other than that, there's no requirement. Raku and pit firings will happen March 6 and/or 7 pending participant input.
