Bay River Pottery

RAKU and Alternative Firings Workshops

April 19 or 26th

One day workshop for potters who will bring their own pots or wish to purchase bisque pots and experience alternative pottery firings. The focus will be on raku to promote crackle and metallic glaze enhancement. In addition to raku and smoke painting, we will prepare pots using bisque terra sigulatta for a saggar wood fire. Fee $90 includes all materials. No experience necessary.

April 18 and April 25

A two day workshop for beginners or those potters without facilities to make their own pots. The first day is a session of hand building in clay using different techniques. A week later, after the pots have dried and been fired, we will glaze and spend the day firing. Fee is $150 including all materials. Absolutely no previous experience necessary. For those who simply want to experience raku there will be pots you may purchase to glaze and fire.
