About the event

Raku is a dramatic, fast, and exciting alternative firing technique! Red hot pieces are removed from the kiln and placed in a reduction chamber filled with combustible materials to create flashes of color in the glazes, and beautiful crackle effects embellished by the smoke in the reduction chamber. This workshop is appropriate for all levels of experience and is open to students 16 and older.

Bring your own pieces, up to 6, to be fired. They must be no taller than 8 inches and no wider than 6 inches. Because of spacing, plates and wide bowls should be avoided for this firing. Your pieces must be bisque fired to either cone 06 or 04 using Stoneware or Raku clay. Glazes will be provided. Feel free to email us if you have any question about specialty pieces. Don't forget to pack some lunch as we will be firing throughout lunchtime, drinks and snacks will be provided. You can bring camping/folding chair to rest inbetween firing cycles as this event will be held outside.


Raku firing will have open flames and high temperatures, so you must be wearing cotton clothing, long sleeves, jeans, and closed toe shoes in order to participate. If you have long hair, please make sure you're able to tie it, and if you have facial hair, please make sure you do not put in any products as they might be flammable.



All tools will be provided such as tongs, gloves, reduction chambers, paper, glazing instruments, and flammable materials (newspaper). If you have welding gloves and would like to bring them, feel free. Make sure to wear clothes you don’t mind getting dirty or smelling like a campfire.
