The cost is £80.00 per person (£30.00 deposit) which includes all materials, glazes and firings and tea, coffee and cake. Maximum 6 people.

In the two hour hand-building workshop you’ll be shown basic techniques with which to make at least two forms including a bottle/vase vessel and a bowl. After drying and bisque firing you will return to glaze and raku fire them (weather permitting). If already experienced at hand-building you may develop your own project (but please run your ideas past me first). 

This process of ‘Western’ raku employs a fast method of firing and produces unpredictable and colourful results.
