Session 4 Raku, Sunday mornings*
Raku (Session 4)
Raku is a low temperature, easily accessible firing method that can be used to create unpredictable and exciting ceramic surfaces. Work is removed from the kiln while it is still glowing hot and, in this class, students will prepare work for unglazed Raku (naked Raku or horsehair) by using terra sig and slip, and make pieces for finishing with the studio glazes and post-firing reduction. Previous wheel or hand-building experience is needed, but students new to Raku are welcome. *note on times: as a group, students will select one or more days in the session in which to have a longer class and concentrate on firing, while other Sunday meetings will be omitted or shortened proportionately.
Sunday mornings, 10:00 - 1:00
Session 4: June 9 - July 14
