 Firing:

Generally, usually, habitually but NOT FOR SURE, firing will take place on 2 – 3 times a week.
If you need something fired for a certain date, please give yourself lots of wiggle room. For instance if you need something returned by Monday, don’t have it ready for Friday, make sure it’s ready well in advance.
In addition, the kilns will NOT be fired if there isn’t enough to fire. And they won’t be fired if they’re broken 😉 or the centre is closed for some reason beyond our control like a snowstorm. ❄️
