Raku Pottery- Discover your Creativity With Raku Clay


Learn about this Japanese pottery. It has been described as a technique, a specialized product, a state of mind, and even a religious experience. To a traditional Japanese potter, it is perhaps all of the above.

Make your own creations using easy hand-building methods (pinch, slab, and coil). Also learn how to glaze your work; Raku glazes are famous for the beautiful metallic luster and crackle effects.

ALL SKILL LEVELS WELCOME. Then go to Raku Rhody-O (usually in October) for Raku firing.

Registration fee: $70 plus $35 materials fee (includes handout, clay, and bisque firing expenses)
