Raku Play - Light up the Night

Our first Toolkit workshop is an evening of raku firings at BIA

These sessions are for beginners to experienced potters. You will need to bring a few bisqued pots (5-10 small works)  ideally of a shape that is easy to pick up with tongs and place in a bin of combustibles. To keep you safe, please wear old sensible clothes, covered shoes, leather or similar gloves and drinking water.

 

At this evening event, we welcome onlookers to watch this amazing process at no cost.

The glow of the kilns and the molten glazes on the pots as they are removed from the kiln at around 1000 degrees is what gets raku enthusiasts excited. That and the results from plunging the ware in bins to smoke and create a reduction atmosphere to bring out the unpredictable range of colours on the clay surface.

$75.00
