Gas kiln firing suspended

Dear WSP,

We have had to disconnect the gas kiln hood due to a serious problem with the chimney.

Unfortunately there will be no gas firings until the chimney is replaced.  We are in discussions with Northern Kilns and it is hoped that work to do this will be within the next few weeks.

Normal service will be resumed as soon as possible and we thank you for your patience and understanding during this time.  Please be aware that the glaze shelves will become very crowded as they try to accommodate the back log and it may be best if you do not glaze any further bisque ware until the gas kiln is up and running again.

On a positive note, you have hopefully noticed the new biscuit kiln has been installed…..

  1. We have a date for the repair 4th Oct. was suggested by Norhtern Kilns. We can do Oxidation glaze firings with our new electric kiln so please discuss options with your tutor and we will work out timetable with bisc firings.The Board will consider the refund suggestion no doubt.

  2. Hi Rachel,

    Are we going to get a refund on some of our fees? We missed several firings last term and it looks as if we will be lucky if we get a glaze firing before half term!

    Do hope that you are well and have had a good summer.

    Kind regards
