Raku evenings for adults
Experience the exciting Japanese firing method of Raku as part of a fun and relaxed summer evening. You will need to come at least a week prior to your chosen date to create your pots and allow enough time for them to dry and receive an initial bisque firing and then return again to glaze them. At the Raku evening of your choosing you will enjoy a meal and wine and watch your pots going into a home-built kiln (made from an oil drum). When the glazes begin to melt the pots are removed from the kiln and placed in sawdust where they will flame and smoke for half an hour until they can be dusted off and the final effect is revealed. It's VERY exciting! Look up Raku on the internet for more details about the process. £80per person (includes two visits required to make your pots & glaze them, as well as the Raku evening)
