Raku Workshop firing day £65 (please just pay your deposit for now, remainder payment will be due in May)

A fascinating workshop featuring dramatic live Raku firings. Andy Mason brings expert knowledge to an absorbing activity; a blend of fun, art, alchemy, and dramatic suspense.

On the day you will explore the art of creative glazing techniques leading to a 'live' Raku firing of your work.

You get 3 pots to glaze and take home choosing from a range of Andy's hand thrown pots, bowls, vases and sculptural vessels.

Raku: Japanese in origin, translates as ‘spontaneity’ or ‘enjoyment’

Art & Alchemy! - Apply glaze, then place into the kiln for the ‘live’ Raku firing

Suspense - Raku pots emerge from smouldering ashes with unique surface effects - metallic flashes, and rich deep colours

All equipment and materials are provided as well as a simple light lunch.

Tutor: Andrew Mason.

Andy is a potter with over 30 years of expertise, he combines his individual techniques with the great tradition of Raku, bringing energy and enthusiasm to this fascinating activity.
