Raku Workshop with Malcolm Murchison

Featured Image


About the event

Come along to Flowerfield Arts Centre to glaze and fire pre-made pots in the ancient Japanese process of Raku, led by Malcolm Murchison. After glazing, pots are placed in a kiln, followed by sawdust and cold-water. You will take home at least four beautiful pots.

N.B. Caution recommended if you have any history of respiratory illness such as asthma since the workshop will involve proximity to smoke. Please wear older clothes and avoiding man-made fabrics. Long hair should be tied back. A hat is a good idea. You may finish smelling a little of smoke, as if you have been at a garden bonfire. This workshop will take place outdoors and is moderate weather dependent.
