*RAKU WORKSHOP*

Students are invited to experiment with the use of clay using this ancient method of processing, to finish their clay pieces. You will be using the local clay body to make your pieces. For those wanting to use the wheel, this is your opportunity, as one will be available. You will be using a variety of techniques to form your pottery. It will be fired in a Raku kiln then placed hot, into containers of organic material, to produce the necessary reduction atmosphere. This is when we generate the beautiful metallic finishes ranging from reds to greens and yellows on the final product. I have numerous glazes available.
