Raku Pottery Workshops - Simon Ward

About this Event

In the first session you will make a small pot, animal or other item. A few days later in the second session you will complete your masterpiece using RAKU. This traditional Japanese low-firing process has been developed into a Western-style which involves removing pottery from the kiln while at bright red heat and placing it into containers with combustible materials (leaves and sawdust). This affects both the clay body (turning it black to Grey) and the glaze surface can react creating metallic and iridescent colours. It’s an exciting experience seeing pots come out of the kiln glowing with heat, within an hour or so they are cold enough to handle. Because of these processes the minimum age for the workshops is 10 years. The workshops take place in Simon’s garden so please wear suitable clothing.
