Kilns at Te Horo Site Host

Mirek Smisek’s iconic beehive kilns at Te Horo were a hub of ceramic excellence for more than 40 years. The Trust are building on his legacy by preserving the kilns, restoring the land and buildings and becoming a unique community hub again – for future inspiration, education and celebration. There is native bush to explore, a resident potter working on site, and will be kiln-openings, exhibitions, events and more through out the year.
Volunteers are needed on open days to open the gate, help visitors feel welcome and accept a small donation from visitors.
As a volunteer at the Kilns, you will be part of a team helping to celebrate the legacy of Mirek Smisek and creating future inspiration. Other volunteer opportunities are available with The Mirek Smisek Trust if you are interested in doing more.


Friendly, welcoming and able to use EFTPOS (training will be given).
An interest in the Kilns and pottery would be an advantage.
