Tactile Arts has a range of kilns of varying sizes for firing your ceramic work. We also have a glass kiln which is regularly used by the Darwin Fused Glass Group. Kilns are only available for hire by Tactile Arts members, and must only be operated by those who have received a full kiln training induction.
Kiln hire is organised through the office (by phone, email or in person) and attracts a fee depending on the size of the kiln and the firing temperature, as below. Click here for contact information.
The kiln hire fee is for the hire of the entire kiln for the duration of the firing including cooling time, generally between 3 and 4 days. Tactile Arts staff will ensure that an appropriately trained operator is also arranged at the time of the booking, if necessary. Payment must be made in advance of your scheduled kiln booking.
PLEASE NOTE: These prices are subject to change in line with increases in electricity and maintenance costs.
