I need to move and install a kiln to continue my pottery workshops for kids & adults....keep the creativity going !

by Clare Mulcahey in Aberfoyle, Scotland, United Kingdom

Three years ago I started pottery lessons, as the years have passed & my love of pottery has grown I have managed to utilise my new found skills to run pottery workshops for adults and kids that now almost keeps the wolf from the door. 

It has been truly inspirational running my classes, I have met fabulous people & I have had the amazing privilege of being able to inspire others.

By hook & by crook, I have managed to furnish my workshop (I commandeered the only "spare" room in the house) & acquired a potters wheel (rusting in a neighbours garden & now restored)

 ....a kiln is the next aim & I can have one for free but moving it is a BIG hurdle, it is 0.5 T, it is big, it need to be moved a few miles & then down steps, it then needs to be wired up, so my free kiln is going to cost £500 to install.....arghhhh.

A kiln would make such a huge difference to me & my lovely pupils, at the moment we rely on the generosity of the wonderful potter Alice McFarlane who lets us use her kiln but this is a short term & unsustainable option...we want to be able to grab the offer of a free kiln & move it ASAP but funds are low & we are looking for your help.
