RAKU WORKSHOP
Friday, September 15th: 6-9pm- Session #1
Saturday, September 30th: 10-2pm- Session #2...or until all work is fired.
Create stunning one of a kind surface textures with gorgeous fiery metallics and a rainbow of color. Some characteristics of raku can also have a crackle and smokey appearance. These raku characteristics are achieved through a dramatic firing process where pieces are taken red hot from the kiln and put into sawdust, straw, and other organic material to reduce and smoke the wares. This course is suitable for adults that might not have had any previous pottery experience. You can build sculptural works or works can be made on the potters wheel.
This is a two part workshop where the instructor will be going over the entire raku process. Session #1 we will be making the wares and going over glazing tips. In between sessions students will be given a five hour studio pass to finish up any greenware (wet) work and then come back and glaze their bisque pieces for Session #2. Session #2 we will be pulling the red hot pieces from the kiln and placing them into the reducing buckets and trying out a variety of techniques. This is a very exciting ceramic process-come join us for the excitement!
All materials are included: 12 lbs. of clay, glazes, all firings, FIVE hour studio pass, & 7+ hours of instruction.
$175
MORE CLAY MAY BE PURCHASED IF NEEDED.
*CLASS IS LIMITED TO ONLY 6 STUDENTS- SO BOOK EARLY!
