Raku

$49

with Bridgette Kinney

Calendar Oct 3, 2017 at 6 pm, runs for 3 weeks

This class is only for advanced potters who have taken at least one class before. It will be a hand building class only - no wheels this time!

Raku is a fun way to fire but the pieces will NOT BE FOOD SAFE, as they will be decorative pieces only. Students will spend three classes building, creating, and smoothing and then the following Saturday the class will come to Bridgette’s studio for the final glazing and firing. This process could take awhile so pack a lunch. A rain date will be set because Raku is no fun in the rain!

Students will help fire their pieces. Once they are red hot the pieces are removed from the special kiln and then put in a metal bucket with newspaper to cool. This creates a carbon trap which gives each piece a metallic look. The special clay and glaze materials fee of $50 is payable to the instructor the first night of class.
