Radius Art Studio welcomes its members and the wider community to come together for a weekend retreat in the coastal mountains of Oregon. Join Joe Robinson and spend time making work at the legendary East Creek studio and property, fire raku and make pizza on Friday night, and enjoy a leisurely Saturday of finishing up projects in the studio and lounging on the banks of beautiful East Creek.

FIRE DANGER NOTE: In the case of extreme fire danger, raku and wood fired pizza could be too dangerous for the conditions. In that case, we will pivot to a gas-grilled meal and will conduct raku only after sunset. You'll be notified in advance if that's the case.
