Our first ceramics workshop took place last night in the basement and we had a great turnout. Ben Steffl Thompson led the workshop where all ages made nifty clay creations.

The pieces will be bisque fired in an electric kiln and then fired in the Anagama wood kiln built by Ben and his wife Melanie in Adena. The wood kiln firing will take place from October 13-17 and there will be a group caravan on Sunday October 14th leaving the MITCH House at 3:30 pm. This is a bi-annual event since it takes 60-72 hours to fire the kiln and wood is added every 5 minutes! Come check it out! Visit Ben’s website for more information on the Anagama kiln.
