About the event

One Day Fun Day: Decorate and fire a Raku pot

Sunday June 11, 11a-4p

Beginners Welcome

$95/person

Join Joe Robinson and the East Creek team for a day of painting and firing pots at the East Creek studio!

Arrive at 11:00a for a brief orientation and quick transition to the studio. We'll provide a handmade pot and all the materials and tools you need.

Then, spend the day painting and firing a raku pot. You'll be provided a handmade thrown piece which you'll have the opportunity to paint with included glazes and fire. Raku is a fast firing process in which we heat the pieces up to red hot (1800F) and pull the red hot pieces from the kiln and place them in a metal container with sawdust, which immidiately bursts into flames. The flames starve the piece of oxygen, resulting in flashy metallic glazes and jet black clay.

Lunch is on your own, but if you want to bring food to heat up in the microwave or grill on our gas grill you are most welcome. The nearest restaraunt is about 15 minutes away- most participants bring a sack lunch. Some limited refrigerator space is available. 

The programming instruction ends at 4:00. We welcome you to stay for the evening in one of our tiny cabins, or to camp for free. East Creek is home to lots of great hiking and a beautful creekside hangout spot. You are also of course welcome to depart at the end of the programming, camping is optional and not neccesary to finish your pieces. 

Bisque (first) firing is included with your workshop. You may choose to take your work away, pick up your bisque, or complete a glaze firing at an extra charge. You'll be presented with a range of finishing options including:
