Workshop Overview

In this one day workshop, participants will experience the ceramic art of Raku, an exciting technique that involves removing the ceramics from a special kiln at the height of firing. Participants will begin the day glazing their previously bisqued piece, then participating in firing the Raku kiln while learning about the process. Glaze will be provided by the instructor. Participants may choose to do a naked (unglazed) Raku piece and apply horsehair or feathers to create different effects on the unglazed surface. Participants who choose to glaze will achieve a metallic surface on their finished item.
