•FIRING SCHEDULE: Depending on the projects, your last 2 or 3 classes will be spent glazing your pottery. After you glaze your bisque fired projects are glazed, it will take 2 to 3 weeks to have them glaze fired. Most pottery can be picked up 2 to 3 weeks after your last class. If you have to leave to go back north sooner, speak to your teacher to make special arrangements.
•MISSED CLASSES: Because of the schedule of this special session, there are no opportunities to make up a missed class at a different time.
