Unfortunately, this class has sold out. Add yourself to the waitlist here.

An introduction to basic pottery making, with the focus on making pieces to experiment with sawdust pit and raku firings. This two day workshop features slide shows, demonstrations, and the hands-on interactive experience of making ceramic pots, building kilns, and alternative firings. During the first weekend, participants will start with their hands in the clay, molding and sculpting simple pinch pot forms, 4-5 pieces each. The same day, the group will build the Pioneer Works Pit and Raku kilns. The following weekend, participants will return to glaze their pieces, fire the kilns, and witness the beautiful effects of the flame, carbonization and fuming on their pots. Open to all experience levels.
