Gulf Coast Kiln Walk has built 2 world-class kilns as originally planned in the founding project purpose and now plans to enhance the educational support infrastructure with a new facility that will provide a work space for members, area potters and ceramicists and others. It will also provide Studio and Gallery space devoted to serving the ceramic arts. Please read our latest Society Newsletter, (November 2023) (click).

The Woodstoke Festival is a free and very popular public event, usually held yearly. Pots from the two very large kilns are unloaded and available for viewing and purchase. Attendees are welcome to help unload the two historical kilns, the Anagama & the Ralph H. Phillips Groundhog Kiln. Videos and Slide shows of the construction, firings and WoodStoke Festival unloadings are on this page. Click here to download a poster of the Sat. Feb. 10 WoodStoke Fest for your favorite wall !
