Join us at Lucy Locket Land for a night time workshop of Raku firing. We'll have pots pre bisque fired ready for you to come along and get creative with!

In our raku workshop we will explain how to glaze your pot with our many bespoke Raku glazes all made by ourselves. You can use resist techniques and patterns to create your masterpiece. Once you've finished glazing it, we let it dry for a few minutes, pop it in the kiln until the glaze melts (around 950 degrees celcius) then when it's at that top temperature, we take it out of the kiln and place into an airtight sawdust bin which helps with post reduction and getting all those lovely coppery bronze colours. Once cooled down in there, the final stage is to cool fully in a bucket of water and wash the pots off ready to take home.

The whole process takes around an hour ish so its quite instant compared to our tableware firings.workshop costs £35 and lasts around 3 hours.

Must wear sensible clothing, workshop is partially outdoors.

As this is a guest workshop full payment is required in advance to book your place and this cannot be refunded unless the workshop is cancelled by the organisers.
Price: 35.00
