collection of work
Our technical team work extremely hard to ensure that your work is well looked after and is fired as quickly as possible. During the firing process work can become damaged, crack or explode. Any work damaged during a firing is not the responsibility of The Kiln Rooms. We would ask people to allow at least 10 days for work to be fired once (either bisc or glaze) and to please allow 3 weeks for two firings. In the event of technical issues, such as an element breaking, this can take slightly longer. Please only ever use materials which will fire to our communal firing temperatures (1,000 degrees for bisc and 1,260 degrees for stoneware). All of the materials we stock fire to these temperatures. If someone is responsible for kiln damage due to using incorrect materials they will be liable to pay for the damage caused.
If the above collection times don’t work for you please email firstname.lastname@example.org and we’ll see if we can arrange another time
12 week courses: In addition to class fees materials will be charged at £2.50 per 500g of fired pot (e.g, about £1 for a teacup). Pots should be paid for on collection. Work made must be taken within 21 days after the final session of a 12 week course, unless a request is made to keep it. Any unfinished work at the end of the block may be thrown out, unless a request is made to keep it. Collection times below.
Taster sessions / 5 week courses: All materials costs are part of the session / course fees, therefore there are no additional costs. You will receive an email informing you when the work is ready for collection (generally 3 -4 weeks after a taster session and 2 weeks after the final class on a 5 week course). From the date of this email you will have 14 days to collect your work. Taster session work will be bagged up and ready to be taken. Please ensure that you take the right bag with your name on. 4 week taster work will be on the shelves you used throughout the course and please bring newspaper / bubblewrap to wrap it up with.
If you have any questions about any of the above please don’t hesitate to get in touch: email@example.com
