This year in conjunction with Adamah Clay Studios in Dodgeville, Wisconsin two potters from Nicaragua, Douglas Lopez and Carlos Espinoza who work with Potters for Peace are teaching a low temperature wood firing workshop. This workshop will be an immersion into the low fire techniques used among potters in Nicaragua.
Build a kiln shed and kiln: Join Potters for Peace for a 10-day work trip to Nicaragua. This working brigade will be building a mani kiln and kiln shed for the community workshop at La Naranja, a pottery community near the town of San Juan de Limay. The kiln shed will be a traditional “rancho” pole construction with a clay tile roof.
Cost: $900 per person. Trip includes all costs except airfare and personal purchases. Meals, accommodations, and pickup/drop-off at the airport are included.
