    East Creek November 2022 Anagama Firing and Catenary Firing

    Loading: Jan. 7-9, 2023

    Firing: Jan. 9-17, 2023

    Unloading: Saturday Jan. 28, 2023

    Join us for our annual fall firing of the Anagama and ChickenCat! We'll focus on developing glassy, functional surfaces in the kiln and sharing the East Creek experience. Each participant should plan on attending Saturday of the loading, at least one day of the firing, and the unloading.

    Newcomers are welcome to sign up. Participants receive a short handbook with some information, and OPA will offer support through our woodfiring liaison.

    You are signing up to join the East Creek November firing. If you are new to wood firing, this is a great opportunity to try firing two styles of kilns in a supportive and educational environment.

    The OPA liaison will host a pre-firing Zoom meeting to answer any questions you may have about clays to use, ideas about different work you may want to make for the firing, as well as logistical questions about getting your work to East Creek and what to expect.

    Liaison Q & A Zoom Meeting 

    DATE: December 6th, 2022

    TIME: 6:30-7:15  

    ZOOM LINK: https://us06web.zoom.us/j/85993687951

    Liaison Responsibilities:

    • Host a pre firing Zoom to meet participants and answer preliminary questions
    • Be on East Creek property Friday evening and Saturday of loading to help welcome and orient OPA members to property, introduce them to the community, act as support for all questions members have in regards to wood firing at East Creek, help members understand and sign up for work shifts during the firing, and help them prepare their pots for firing.
    • Be on East Creek property the day of unloading to help support OPA members

    Covid Policy: East Creek requires COVID-19 vaccinations for all program participants over 18 years old. A vaccination exemption will be granted with a signed letter from a Medical Doctor only. We follow the recommendations of the Oregon Health Authority and mandates from the Governor's Office. Masks will be required onsite when Oregon Health Authority guidance requires it. We ask all participants to practice social distancing.
