Adult Intensive | Raku Pottery

October 13, 2018 @ 10:00 am - 4:00 pm

Join artist Walter Hobbs as he teaches you the beautiful process of creating Raku Pottery through this three part intensive. Raku normally refers to a pottery firing process used in the 1500’s in Japan, which was part of the tea ceremony. Today the raku process has been changed to include a “post firing reduction” which changes the overall look and texture of the finished works.
This adult intensive will be over three weeks going through each step of the Raku pottery process.
