Raku involves rapid firing and cooling in specific outdoor kilns. This course, at Morley Waterloo Centre, provides a full opportunity during the evening sessions 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 functional objects. One kiln load per student, due to the firing schedule to accommodate 12 student’s works. This usually amounts to 5 - 6 medium sized objects. DATES -24th May, 7th, 14th, 21st, 28th June. This course consists of 4 making sessions and 1 glazing in the evenings, plus 1 firing day on a Saturday. There will be a charge for clay work to be glazed and fired.

Students work alongside each other in a mutually supportive environment in which you will learn both from your tutor and each other.
