The Artists’ Workshop will be holding a Raku Firing on Friday afternoon, December 1 and all day on Sunday, December 3.
(All specific info at the bottom of this post)
Raku ware (楽焼 raku-yaki) is a type of Japanese pottery traditionally used in Japanese tea ceremonies, most often in the form of chawan tea bowls. ... In the traditional Japanese process, the fired raku piece is removed from the hot kiln and is allowed to cool in the open air.
It will be very hands-on: "...a very participatory experience. We all cover our heads with scarves, wear leather aprons when near the hot trash cans, rip up paper for the trash cans, etc. Lots of fun!"
Friday Dec 1, at 1:00 PM- 4:00 PM
Sunday, Dec 3, at 8:00 AM – 5:00+PM
Class held in Studio A and outside kiln area.
$50 Members, $55 Non-Members for the two-day session
and $10 supply fee.
