Susan Beecher: June 16th - 18th, 2017
Join us for a weekend of making pots at bucolic and serene Sugar Maples Craft Center in Catskills New York. This workshop is lead by Susan Beecher and Outi Putkonen as additional support. Susan will introduce the participants to throwing and altering forms and the student can save and have the pieces bisque fired for our September salt firing at the center. The fee includes accommodations in shared rooms (two ppl per room) as well as lunch and dinner. Only 8 spaces available for the double weekend!
Join us for the 2nd weekend of September 15 to 17, 2017 for a salt firing at Sugarmaples Craft Center in Catskills. This a follow up trip to the center to fire the pieces made on June workshop. If you missed the June trip you can bring bisque pieces made elsewhere as long as they are made of clay that can go to cone 10. We will glaze and load the kiln on Friday, fire and add salt on Saturday and kiln can be unloaded on Sunday early evening. While we are waiting for temperature to rise and the kiln to cool we can use the studio for practice throwing or handbuilding (NOTE: nothing can be bisque fired at this time but you can try to pack it and bring it back to get fired at Mugi).

We offer gas reduction firing trips to David Frank in Guilford, CT. David is one of our studio potters and opens his kiln to our groups along with his array of spectacular glazes and expertise in glazing advise.
Registration for these field trips are on a first-serve basis, and they do fill up quickly. The specifics of the firing will be shared with the participants a few weeks before the trip.
As these trips must be planned well in advance for both space in the kiln and the logistics the registrations is non-refundable unless you can find another student to take your place.
Please note: all field trips are only open to our currently enrolled students and associates.
