CERAMICS WEEKEND WORKSHOP "B"  
Raku Glazing and Firing

Beginner | 8:00am - 5:00pm Sat/Sun |  Dec. 16-17, 2017 | $350 ($600 for A+B)

This is a fascinating firing process to see and be a part of. Raku firing is dramatic and exciting. It is also a wonderful way to actually watch the glazes melt and see what happens inside the kiln in a matter of minutes. Bring your own bisque pieces to glaze fire if you choose, or purchase bisque pots made by instructors and glaze and fire them.
