ONSITE: Raku Firing Workshop (C)

Head over to VisArts' courtyard and join us for some raku pottery firing—an exciting approach to pottery surface design! Participants will glaze their pieces, help load them into the kiln, grab a beer or snack across the street at Goatocado, then return to enjoy the campfire-like atmosphere with friends on our back patio.

Special Notes


  • Bring your own piece of pottery to fire (maximum dimensions to fit in our kiln are 6"x 6"x10") or buy a piece to fire from us for $10-$20. Bring extra pieces in case there's more kiln space and pay an extra $5 to fire them! Confirmation of Raku classes will happen the Friday afternoon of that weekend.
    Students will need to bring a piece to fire or buy one of ours.


    Classes are confirmed one week prior to the start date. In order to help us confirm classes, please register as early as possible.
