One-Day Workshop
Saturday, October 28

Experience the drama, amazement and instant gratification of Raku in this half-day firing workshop. Bring up to 5 bisque fired pieces (vertically oriented vase and cylinder forms up to 12 inches in height preferred). We’ll glaze the pieces using a variety of crackle, iridescent luster and matte glazes and fire the work outdoors in our Raku kiln. Pieces will be removed from red-hot kilns and quickly transferred into ash cans lined with flammable materials. Participants will go home the same day with dramatically transformed, finished work!

You can build long lasting structures from your scrap clay. Join us in erecting a teahouse from reclaimed and scrap clay using the ancient technique of cob house building. This weeklong workshop will focus on making permanent structures using only clay, straw, sand, water, and dirt. We will cover the fundamentals of mixing cob and explore the vast possibilities of how to apply it to building walls, mass heaters, or pizza ovens.
