About the Course

Techniques include burnishing and the use of terra sigilatta, naked and horsehair/feather raku, ferric fuming, and saggars.The workshop is most suitable for participants with at least a basic experience of working with clay who want to know more about these 'alternative' techniques. The 'Introduction' workshop is not primarily aimed at producing finished work but intended to give participants experience of different methods of achieving surface markings which they can then employ in their own work. More advanced workshops are also available.

John Evans will be leading the workshop. His work using alternative raku techniques is widely known in the UK and articles about his techniques have featured in 'Ceramic Review', 'Craft and Design' magazine and international publications. The workshop hours are 10.00 am - 5.00 pm.
