Workshop: Build a Soda Kiln



Guldagergaard is delighted to present an 18-day kiln building workshop with Kiln Master Andres Allik (EE), who is one of the most knowledgeable kiln builders and designers working today.


This workshop aims at giving you hands-on experience with kiln building, and you will be under the personal guidance of the skilled Kiln Master Andres Allik. During the workshop, there will be many opportunities for formal and informal discussions with Andres Allik as he lectures and demonstrates all aspects of wood firing and how to work with the kiln.


After finishing the kiln, you will have the opportunity to fill it with your own work and thus get to know the new kiln by firing it. The workshop is designed to enhance participants’ knowledge of kiln building and wood firing (in general).


Sign up here.


May 1st – May 18th 2017 at Guldagergaard
The workshop requires interest in wood firing and the wish to dive further into the intricate workings of a soda kiln – but in return you will get the unforgettable experience of the camaraderie built around wood firing and experience the wealth that the wood firing culture has to offer. Prior experience in the atmospheric firing processes will be helpful, but it is not a must.


You will of course have the guidance and support of Andres Allik and Guldagergaard’s experienced Kiln Yard Technician Evelin Saul (EE) during your entire stay.
