We are thrilled to be one of the only programs on the Cape offering access to a wood kiln! Seth Rainville has been busy building a wood kiln at the home studio of Deb Hutchins (Former beginning student at FAC) where we will be firing in week 8 of the session. Demonstrations and advanced education in the process will occur each week including throwing, handbuilding, slip work and glazing. A wide variety of forms will be demonstrated and discussed with a focus on suitability for the process of wood firing. Students must be willing to assist in the loading and firing of the kiln on weeks 8 and 9 with a ceremonious unloading party on week 10! Firing and materials fees are included in the cost of the class. Don’t miss this rare opportunity!


**  Please note: an additional fee of $75 is to be paid directly to Deborah Hutchins, owner of the wood fire kiln that is being used for the class.

Refund policy:

Refunds will not be given within one week of the start of a class. Classes are not pro-rated, and there are no makeups for missed classes. A $25 processing fee is withheld from all refunds.

The Art Center reserves the right to cancel any class or workshop due to insufficient enrollment, in which case tuition will be fully refunded.

If Falmouth Public Schools are closed due to weather conditions, we will be closed and the missed classes will be rescheduled.




Fee includes 25 pounds of clay, glaze and firing fees. A tool kit may be purchased for $20. Open studio time, which is scheduled several times throughout the week, is available at no extra charge.
