Raku Pottery Workshop

Description:

Raku is based on a traditional Japanese process where specially formulated clay is used to hand-build objects and pots, which are dried, glazed and quickly heated to red hot in a kiln, melting the glazes.

Pots are then removed and placed in garbage cans filled with a variety of organic materials such as leaves or sawdust. The lids are then put on the cans, creating a smokey environment that "reduces" the clay and glazes. The body of the pot turns black, the glazes intensify and crack. The fun is in the surprise, for while you can control the basic color of the glaze, how the glazes respond to the smoke/reduction can vary widely. Children love this process and are welcome to attend (5 and up) but must be accompanied by a parent.

In this class, instructors Alan Sprague and Roberta Sprague will guide you through the Raku process. All materials are provided!
