Raku and pitfire
Application of the raku technique is central in this workshop. In 4 lessons you make a few pieces of work using clay suitable for raku. In the fifth lesson you will glaze the pieces that have already been fired. We will use a whole day to bake them in a gas kiln. Also you can experiment with pitfire, which is primitive kind of smoke fire. Suitable for beginners and up to advanced.
Firing day with your own group
With you own group under expert guidance you can fire raku and pitfire in my garden (maximum 10 persons).
The date is in consultation and time is from 10.00-16.00 hour
(2 biscuit pieces of work max. 40 cm high for the raku and 3 biscuit polished pieces of work for the pitfire).
Price per person is €60,-
