This 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. Leaving them to be dried and bisque fired you will then return for the 2nd day of glazing and raku firing. If you are already experienced at hand-building you may develop your own project (but please run your ideas past Nicola first). 

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