Raku involves rapid firing and cooling in specific outdoor kilns. This course, at Morley Waterloo Centre, provides a full opportunity during evening sessio ns to make, bisque fire, and apply glaze. On the Saturday you spend the day outdoors firing. It is suitable for the complete beginner. Raku does not create f unctional objects. One kiln load per student is allowed due to the firing schedule to accommodate 12 students works. This usually amounts to 5 - 6 medium sized objects. DATES 11,18,25 June, 2 July, 8 July, 10 July. This course provides 4 making sessions and 1 glazing in the evenings, plus 1 firing day on a S aturday. All students must follow physical distancing guidelines as explained by your tutor.

Please bring and use you own tools - we also have basic tool packs to purchase.
