3. Personal firings
Group discussed the request for creating personal firings possibly for money contributions.
James H, stated that we can not reserve or rent out community equipment
Discussed the possibility of a "test" kiln for these types of firings and the need for good ventilation if there are items that may burn or cause smoke
Agreement that we need to put some basic procedures around the request/process. Amanda, James and Allen will work on the proposal which will include research on venting needs.
Vote tabled until procedures/research can be presented to the committee
