Description

Experience the exciting process of Raku! Choose from a selection of handmade biscuit fired pots to decorate with glazes. Work together to load and fire the Raku kiln. Watch as your pots are fired, and taken out of the kiln red hot! Use reduction techniques to alter the glazes. Finally give your glazed ceramics a wash to reveal the transformation. This is a thrilling process, suitable for beginners or if you have previous experience. Potters are welcome to bring their own pots to glaze – please get in touch to discuss requirements. You will be able to take your Raku fired ceramics away with you on the day.

  • Class sizes are small & welcoming with a maximum of six students per group, ensuring plenty of tuition. Courses are suitable for over 16’s only.
  • Please dress for mess! The firing will take place outside, so bring appropriate clothing for the time of year and weather. Enclosed toe shoes recommended.

Fee

The price (of £60) per person includes tuition, bisc fired pots & glaze firing. You can expect to glaze two pieces of pottery to be fired.
