Students will learn the history and contemporary aspects and influences of Raku. Students will utilize basic hand building and throwing to create work that will then be fired in our Raku kiln . This hands on firing technique, where ceramic pieces are taken out of the kiln glowing hot and placed into an oxygen reduced atmosphere, is one of the ways to get vibrant sparkling colors in raku ware.
Please note: Classes are held at The Center on Wednesdays. Firing will occur remotely 2-3 times in the session (possibly Fridays). Specific dates for firing will be discussed during class.
The Center has a wheelchair accessible pottery wheel in our ceramics studio. If you would like more information, please call 908-234-2345.
NOTE: There is no class on 8/16.
All students must comply with the Policies and Procedures found on The Center's website. There will be no refunds for students removed from class for failure to observe The Center’s Policies and Procedures.
