We take all care:
Maker's Loft will take all care where possible, however we don't take responsibility for loss or damage and reserves the right to refuse any items which we feel may cause problems. If you have any concerns, you may choose not to use the service.
Firing time frame
Firing is conducted only when kiln is full. This may mean a delay in getting your ware back on certain firings.
We should be able to give you an idea of time frame when you bring your items in for firing.
Safety of work & kiln
To help us protect our kiln and other peoples’ work:
• We do not accept wet work. It must be 100% dry when dropping it off for firing.
• We ask you supply specific details of the clay and/or glazes used or your work may not be fired.
• We do not to fire work with glazed bases.
Please note: You are responsible for any damage your work causes to Maker's Loft kiln and/or shelves; you are liable for replacement costs.
The base and 5mm from the base must be free from glaze.
We can only stilt earthenware (if we must).

All work left at Maker's Loft for longer than 2 months will be disposed of.
