Join Robert Pillers, the Potters for Peace Nicaraguan Director, and a few wood fire potters from Nicaragua for a mid-fire, kiln-building workshop. Come build a 'Mani kiln" used throughout Central America to wood fire tumble-stacked, mid-range (cone 6) pottery.  The kiln can be built in about 3 days and will be ready to fire at the end of the workshop!  Bring your own bisque-fired pieces to fire in the kiln.  We will be introducing the idea of an 'Olla': a terracotta vessel that gets planted in the ground and filled with water to water the roots of plants in your garden
