With no obstruction to get through in order to get the wire from the panel (that has space for the new circuit to the kiln location) the DIYer will only need the material and about an hour of their time (two at most).

Go shopping for 20 feet of wire and the breaker and the receptacle.

I'd call it more of an all-afternoon project if you're new to wiring, but it's not hard. It would probably be in the neighborhood of a few hundred bucks to have it done, or probably about $100 in material to DIY. This could vary by a large degree depending on the specifics of the installation.

If you could post photos or a very detailed description of the path from the panel to the receptacle location, and the spaces and construction materials involved, we can provide more specific advice on the best way to handle it.
