Raku pottery: an introduction


About the Course

If you’ve been inspired by the Great Pottery Throwdown to try ceramics take a look at this introduction to Raku Pottery course. In this half-day course you’ll learn how to glaze and fire your own pot, creating stunning results.

Working with the elements of fire, water and earth you’ll explore the Japanese pottery technique called Raku. Loosely translated Raku can mean enjoyment, pleasure, comfort, happiness and contentment. This low firing technique is connected to a rich cultural and spiritual heritage where there is still much to be discovered, experienced and shared.

You’ll start by glazing pots using wonderful and colourful glazes. Then you’ll find out how to make your own kiln and place your own pot into the kiln to fire. When the pots are ready to be removed from the kiln you’ll learn how to take them out safely before dunking them in water. The stunning raku effects will be revealed as you take the pots out of the water and clean them up.

At the end of the session you’ll take your beautiful raku pot home with you.
