Playing With Fire: Raku Firing Workshop

Saturday, September 30, 3:00pm until the job is done!

Presented by Gailen from the Clay Bank in Springdale, AR

Workshop costs $15 per person, which includes glazes and firing. Participants must be 18 or older, please!

Join us for another evening of magic on the mountain, as Gailen demonstrates the ancient art of raku pottery firing and other specialized ceramic firing techniques. Participants are encouraged to bring their own bisqued pieces (high fire clay only, unglazed). No pieces of your own? Not a potter? Not a problem. We will have pieces available for purchase for you to glaze and fire and you’ll bring home a beautiful one-of-a-kind piece of art.
