Raku Pottery workshop on Friday 21st September 2018 10.30 – 3.30 with Pris McGirr
Limited to 6 places We will provide 3 pieces ready for you to glaze and fire. This is a visually exciting and fast way of firing pottery with beautiful and surprising results. Raku involves removing pottery from the kiln while at bright red heat and placing it into containers with combustible materials. Once the materials ignite, the containers are closed. This produces an intense reduction atmosphere, which affects the colours of the glazes. The drastic thermal shock can result in a desirable crazing of the surface.
Please bring shoes that cover your toes, cotton clothes, tie back long hair & bring a packed lunch.
