Experience the ancient craft of RAKU. Developed in 16th century Japan, this fascinating method of producing pottery continues to enthrall artists today. In this age old tradition, wares are removed from the kiln while still red-hot and rapidly cooled in combustion chambers creating a wide variety of rich and unique surface effects that cannot be reproduced by any other means.
Participants will create their own artwork at workshop(s) and return on May 22nd to observe the firing of the artwork.
