We are partnering up with Kadence Studios to bring our community a Halloween Raku firing event (now with two nights to choose from!) that will add a touch of spooky magic to your fall season! As the leaves rustle and the shadows grow longer, we invite you to bring your bisque masterpieces, and we'll conjure up the rest! We'll provide glazes that shimmer like moonlight, protective safety gear to ward off any unwanted surprises, and other essentials for a successful Raku experience. Your pieces will be ready to take home immediately after firing. Raku clay (low fire) bisque fired to cone 04 or 06 recommended. Community/Home Potters -$50 Members/Multi-Week Students - $40 (use the code that was sent in your email) ***This is a glazing/firing event only -- you must have raku bisqueware by October 27th or October 28th -- please plan accordingly! You can bring up to 3 small pieces (6" or under) or 1 large piece not measuring more that one cubic foot. Join us in a scavenger hunt for combustibles onsite, or bring your own materials to try (like horse hair or honey!). When you arrive you will glaze your pieces and then we will get them in the raku kiln to start the process. $50 includes the glaze and firing portion of this event. You must bring your own bisque piece/pieces to the event. For best results bisque fire at 04 or 06. You can purchase Raku clay at Kilnfolk Clay studios for $1/lb or $24 for a 25lb bag.
