RAKU

Hot Pots! Raku!

 

Intrigued by the excitement and spontaneity of the Raku process and want to experience more?

Then sign up for this class! 

Let's get our hands muddy!

 

Each 4 week session will go more in depth with a specific glazing/surface technique of Raku. Such as: the popular Horse hair/Feather, Crackle glazes, Obvara, Sagger, Copper mat, and 'Naked' Raku techniques.

 

In your 4 week session your instructors will spend the first 2 weeks demonstrating and assisting you in the making of specific forms suited for the best results with each Raku glazing/surface technique. Your 3rd class will be surface prep and glazing fun! The 4th class is what we all have been waiting for: turning on the kilns, listening to the fire roar, pulling glowing pots out the kiln and then, the magic happens! Raku Time!

CLAY FOR THE DAY

Not sure that the potter's wheel is for you? Register for a one-time Try It! class. Spend 3 hours giving the wheel a spin. We supply materials, basic instruction and hands-on assistance. You get a feel for the clay and discover the magic of making functional objects on the potter’s wheel.

Because making pots is a long process, there isn’t enough time in that one class to finish any pieces. At the end of your Try It! class, if you decide you want more, you can register for a 4-week session and any pots you’ve made will be saved for you to finish later.

Saturdays 12:00-3:00 

$60.00

CLAY FOR THE DAY

COUPLES NIGHT

A Date Night is a typically pre-planned evening when a committed couple carves out some time for themselves away from their children and other responsibilities. Date Nights can also be “Date Days,” but the key idea is that the couple is spending time as a couple, and not as unstructured “family time.” Come on out and get your clay on. Each couple will be designated to a potter’s wheel. You will work and play together, bring your own bottle of wine and enjoy, laugh and get messy.
