Clayspace is offering a four week Raku class on Mondays from 6:30 to 9 pm from Oct. 20 through Nov. 10!
Whether you’re looking for a new hobby or would like to expand your horizons in the artistic world, join OAL member and Clayspace instructor/ resident artist Todd Hickerson through the 4-week journey to the raku kiln!
Raku is an exciting and rewarding way to fire your work, and the fire and smoke from the reduction chambers add drama to the process and create stunning surfaces on the work! It’s a skill that will last you a lifetime, and who knows, it could be your calling. At only $150 a person, why miss the opportunity to find out?
Spend 3 weeks making work to raku, and spend the last class firing the raku kiln. Work can be made on or off the potter’s wheel and textured for the kiln. The 3rd class will focus on glazing and the final class will focus on the firing process.
Do yourself a favor and sign up now!
If the idea of raku firing is a bit too intimidating, that’s okay! Clayspace is also offering Daytime Potter’s Wheel on Wednesdays from 11:30- 2 pm! This eight-week course (Oct. 20- Dec. 12) covers basic wheel throwing techniques and those for the more advanced. Students work at their own pace with one-on-one support. This workshop is $280/ person, and trust me, you’ll never be more zen.
