*  Charges are a general guide and are subject to change.

Size & volume of work will be considered when establishing a fee.

A large number of items?

Consider hiring a kiln load.

Hire the kiln rather than pay per piece.  With this method of firing you can have the temperature and type of firing that you require.  You must book in advance to make sure that we have a kiln available for you.  We charge for this service in two ways:

 

YOU LOAD

Book the kiln for a certain day. Come and load the kiln, we will look after the firing, then you unload the kiln when firing is completed. It is Important that you unload the kiln on that day so it is available for someone else to use.  Note: extra charge if you don’t come to unload your kiln when finished firing. $25.

 

WE LOAD

You bring the work in, we will load the kiln, look after the firing and unload the kiln ready for you to collect.

Print, complete & bring along to The Clay Shed with your items for firing!
