Event Details

Create strikingly glazed ceramic pieces in this two-part workshop using raku, a unique Japanese ceramic firing technique. Craft your designs in clay in the first session and return a week later to glaze and fire them. Unlike conventional ceramic firing, the raku technique pulls ceramics from the kiln at temperatures of up to 1,000 degrees centigrade. The pieces are then immediately placed in burning sawdust before being plunged into water, creating beautiful and unique patterns in the glaze.
