Our Raku workshop takes place over two dates. In the first two hour hand-building workshop you’ll be shown a basic ‘pinching’ technique with which to make a small bowl and a larger bottle/vase form. Your work is left to be dried and bisque fired ready for glazing and firing on the 2nd (two weeks later). 

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 two hours (subject to size/technique restrictions). 

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