'Raku' Pottery One Day Workshop

85.00

Saturday 29th June - 10.00am - 4.00pm

Raku is the ancient Japanese art of rapid glaze firing. You will learn how to achieve the most amazing and unique glaze patterns on your ceramic objects , pots and bowls etc, using this unusual technique. Unlike conventional firing techniques, Raku is a firing technique that pulls ceramic objects from the kiln at temperatures of up to 1,000 degrees centigrade. The pots are then immediately placed in combustible materials before being dramatically plunged into water to freeze the interesting surface designs that are created by this method. You will be blown away by the fabulous effects that you can achieve. It is the unpredictability of the outcomes that make Raku so appealing and engaging.

We usually have between 5-8 people on our course and the whole experience is friendly, intimate and very uplifting. Richard is an expert in the mysterious art of Raku and he has taught thousands of people over the years, so you are learning from a master potter and specialist. On the day, you will see Richard in action, demonstrating the art and then you will learn these techniques through hands on experience. The day will also provide the opportunity to hand build pots whilst the firing is in progress. This workshop is suitable for both beginners and those with a little more experience participants must be 18 years+.

All materials and refreshments are included.
