Please join us for a 2-weekend workshop with guest instructor Timothy Weber on October 17th and 24th!
Meets 9-2 each Saturday. The 17th will be our ‘wet work’, the making of our vessels. They should be trimmed and ready to bisque fire no later than Tuesday the 20th. The 24th is the glaze firing day. We will glaze and fire your best pieces and you’ll be able to take your creations home! Clay and glazes are provided, bring your own sack lunch, drinks provided.
Raku is a dynamic, fast firing process. Vessels are heated rapidly, removed hot from the kiln, and placed in a combustion chamber to cool. Intense heat and handling vessels while hot make this a somewhat dangerous encounter, safety protocols must be followed. Disclaimers required.
