Villages Folk School - Raku Pottery

Date:Sep 3rd, 2016 - Sep 3rd, 2016
Time:9:00am - 3:00pm

Raku is a low fire process that results in a wide variety of colors.  No two are ever alike.  We get glaze colors ranging from coppers and golds to greens, yellows, reds, and blues.  You may create a new one! These workshops allow the novice to learn the basics of low fired glazes, application, and firing on bisque pottery forms. Students may bring their own bisque pieces or select from a wide variety of pieces available at Iron & Lace.  Pieces range from $5.00 to $40.00 for bisque fired forms ranging from slab and cookie cutter ornaments to small, medium, and large pots and vases.  (Not suitable for pieces intended for eating or drinking due to the metallic nature of the glaze.) All pieces are fired in propane fueled kilns heated to approximately 1800 degrees F, and post-reduction fired in containers using various organic materials.  Come expecting to learn a lot and have a pot-full of fun!

Class Fee: $28.00+ per person plus the cost of your bisque pieces.
