Firing your Clay Creations
By the end of your workshop you will have a clay masterpieces ready for firing.
At the Fried Mudd studio we do two forms of firing – Mid-range firing (also know as Bisque) and Raku Firing
Firing is complimentary for Shades of Clay workshop participants, and limited to a reasonable number and size of items created during the workshop.
For all other workshops, firing fees range from $5 per small piece up to $50+ per large piece. We will work out your firing costs on the day as the pieces are made.
It takes approximately 3 weeks for your creation to thoroughly dry ready for firing. Once fired we offer a few ways for you to receive your clay creations:
- OPTION 1: Collect from the Fried Mudd Studio – prior appointment is essential.
- OPTION 2: Collect from Peace of Green Gallery in Maleny’s main street.
- OPTION 3: Elect not to pick them up. Seriously. Often, people just come for the experience and aren’t at all attached to their pieces (or feel it’s worth the drive, if some distance away).
You will receive an email once your pieces are ready for collection and work MUST be collected within 30 days of firing. No responsibility it taken for storing work after this 30 day period. We just don’t have the room.
