In the two hour hand-building workshop you’ll be shown basic techniques with which to make a pinch bowl and a bottle/vase form. After drying and bisque firing you will return to glaze and raku fire them. If you are already experienced at hand-building you may develop your own project (but please run your ideas past me first). 

This process of ‘Western’ raku employs a fast method of firing and can produce unpredictable and colourful results.
