Family Day at Wytham – Saturday 15 August

A project to build two traditional Japanese kilns, one willow and one brick, in the heart of Wytham Woods is firing up a lot of interest.

After recently completing the willow kiln, the members of the Anglo-Japanese team involved in the project have been busily working on building the second brick kiln and throwing pots for the first firing.Pots within Kiln at Wytham Woods

You are invited to celebrate the first firing of the newly built willow kiln at a Family Day event at Wytham Woods on Saturday 15 August from 12pm. Come along and enjoy the spectacle of the kiln in full flame and talk to the potters who have been working on this exciting and unique project. Light refreshments will be available.

To find the kiln, go through the top gate in the car park and follow the path round (with the fence to your right) for two minutes. Please be aware that dogs are not permitted at Wytham Woods.
