Learn about the exciting process of Raku! Choose from a selection of prepared biscuit fired pots. You will then use a range of studio made glazes to decorate your pot. We will then work together to load and fire the Raku kiln. Watch as your pots are fired, then taken out of the kiln while still red hot. Finally give them a wash to reveal the glaze transformation. This is a thrilling process, suitable for beginners or if you have previous experience and wish to have your own pots fired using this technique.
You will be able to take your Raku-fired pieces away with you on the day.
