Ashfest 2017


  • Finch Nursery Bailey, NC (map)

This will be our 4th Ashfest Annual Firing Workshop, and will certainly be the best yet!  Hosted by Dan Finch, of Bailey, NC, Logan Wannamaker and I lead the group for the loading/firing, studio tours, local clay exploration, wiffle ball, golf, cycling, disc golf, campfires, etc.  We've hosted 65 wood fire artists in the past few years, and it has been a real treat working with so many great stokers.  

This is likely to be the last Ashfest for a few years, so if you haven't been able to join us in the past this is the year to make the trip.  There are several spaces remaining, so if you are interested contact Justin immediately.  You can also checkout the Ashfest.com website.  The dates are May 28-June 10, join us for an amazing firing experience and learning about the legendary pottery tradition in North Carolina.

"Updated 2/23/2017"  We are offering free camping with access to all amenities, and the 1 bedroom penthouse apartment above the studio is available.  The guest house is pretty much full.  If you prefer hotel accommodations, Wilson is about 15 minutes away with most all modern conveniences.
