Join us for an incredibly rare opportunity to join in the building of a woodfire train-style kiln with guest engineer Ted Neal! This 7-day retreat, nestled in the lush mountains of Occidental, will be a hands-on workshop to learn about the design, engineering, techniques, and process of building a woodfire train kiln.

During this 7-day Workshop participants will work alongside Ted Neal in the development and building of the kiln. Housing for the week is included in the workshop package along with three group dinners and lunches each day. Students enrolled in this workshop will be invited to bring pieces in for the inaugural firing of the CBTB Train Kiln in December.

  • In-depth instruction on how to plan, build, and the inner workings of a wood fire Train Kiln
