Kiln Hire


  • From Term 4 2019 kiln charges have been increased to cover the actual costs of maintaining the kilns, administration, energy and operational costs.
  • A flat fee will now be charged for the hire of a kiln as this makes it easier for both members and Canberra Potters to schedule and manage bookings.
  • Kiln hire does not include access to Canberra Potters glazes. We are happy to provide the recipes for our glazes or you can elect to use the glazes and pay at the glaze and fire rate.
  • Until the new webpage is live in 2020 kilns will still be invoiced to the Hirer. Please ensure you complete the kiln log accurately.
