Raku Workshops

Employing Japanese pinching and carving techniques and all the excitement of ‘western’ raku.
Fast-firing, flames and random, vibrant colours!

Hand-building & Raku Workshop

Workshops are run over two days, two weeks apart

First Session: Hand-building a Japanese style teabowl (using pinching and carving techniques) and pinch bowls, which may include making and joining two pinch bowls together to create a larger vase, bottle or organic form, or one or two pinch bowls.

Second Session: Glazing and raku firing. Demonstration of basic glazing methods before glazing your own work. Fast-firing of the work takes place outside and your work will be ready to take away at the end of the firing.

This is an ideal entry level course for beginners as no experience is necessary. If you have some hand-building experience already you may develop your own project during the first session (subject to size/technique restrictions).

NB. Raku ware is for decorative use only.
