What you'll do
We'll take a 10 minute tour of the East Creek property, checking out our 40 foot long wood fired kiln, studio, pond, bunkhouse, tiny cabins, and pizza oven. Then, we will head for the studio for a 50-minute orientation and instruction time to set you up to make clay art of your choice. You will then have 3 hours to use the studio and tools to make your creation. Your piece can be taken away, or fired at East Creek in one of several ways which we will discuss.
I'm Joe, co-owner of the East Creek Art property, a 20 acre forest art studio and retreat. I've been working with clay for 20 years and am an undergraduate art professor. I earned my Master of Fine Arts at OCAC and PNCA here in Oregon, and it's my mission to further arts education. As part of that mission, I am driven to share my artist's playground and the 5,000 square foot artist's studio here. I have helped thousands of people make their first pot, and each year I host nearly 1,000 people to fire our 40 foot, wood burning Anagama kiln, which burns for 5 continuous days using 12 cords of wood (30,000lbs) each firing.

Where you'll be
The workshop will take place in the 5,000 sq. ft. art studio at East Creek, a 20 acre forest studio and retreat in Oregon's coastal mountains. East Creek is home to a historic, 40 foot long wood fired ceramic art kiln known as an Anagama. The kiln was built in 1983 and has had an educational mission since.

East Creek is a remote place. There is no cell service (I do have a landline for emergencies). It's 5-10 degrees colder at the studio than in town. You can stay in our tiny cabin for your experience- check out the Airbnb listing.
