We’ll start the day with a some clay hand building to gently warm us into the clay mood. At mid-day we’ll then paint some pre-made ceramic bisque pieces ready for raku glaze firing in the afternoon – think ceramic cafe with a super hot twist. Pieces will be packed into the outdoor gas fired kiln and during lunch that’s when we really turn up the heat (to 1100 degrees). After lunch pieces are then unloaded into sawdust bins to to restrict oxygen and the raku effect takes form. There will be a few casualties along the way – pieces we mean. Participants then polish off any surviving pieces to reveal the magical effect of raku.
This is a magical day – you don’t even have to be a beginner or particularly into ceramics to enjoy this workshop – just book for the experience.
