This workshop will be held on Gibbs Street directly in front of VisArts.

Raku pieces are  put directly into a very hot kiln where they remain about 20 minutes until the glazes have melted at a temperature of 1820 F. Each piece is them removed from the kiln using long Raku tongs and put into a container with combustible material. The atmosphere inside the covered container produces wonderful lustrous and crackle glazes, which makes each piece unique.

All pots must be glazed no later than the day before the firing and Raku glazes will be available in the VisArts Glazing Room in the week prior to the firing. Please use the sign up sheet for a glaze appointment. https://www.signupgenius.com/go/9040f4eada92baa8-ceramic1 Each student may bring up to 6 pots to the firing. This limit is strictly enforced. If not familiar with the process and/or the glazing, participants should contact either Janet or Ann before the firing in time to prepare pots for the firing. 

All glaze materials are included in the workshop, but clay is not provided. Any high-fire clay that VisArts uses may be used for Raku. Here is a link to buy clay:https://www.visartscenter.org/p-c/pc-classes/pc-ceramics/purchase-materials/
