Raku evenings for adults: Finished for the season
Experience the exciting Japanese firing method of Raku as part of a fun and relaxed summer session. During this we will provide light snacks and drinks. You will glaze your pieces by dipping them in your chosen glaze. When the pots are dried they will then be put into the Raku kiln where they will stay for approximately 10/15 minutes to reach a temperature of 1000C. The pots are removed from the kiln and placed in sawdust (you can add your own material in with the sawdust if you wish) - the sawdust will burst into flames from the heat of the pots - they will be covered with a lid and left to smoke for an hour or so. Finally they will be taken out of the sawdust and placed in water to cool and clean, which will reveal the colours and patterns - VERY exciting! Look up Raku on the internet for more details about the process. £60 per person
