On this course you start on day one by building a raku kiln usingg an oil drum. All materials for this are supplied including the oil drum, ceramic fiber lining material, 2 kiln shelves, 3 props and a burner with regulator valve. You will take this kiln home with you so you can continue your Raku firing at home. On day 2 there will be a pit firing and on day 3 multiple techniques of Raku firing are demonstrated, these include slip resist and naked Raku, obvara, glazing with lustre's and without and horsehair and feather.

Students are required to bring 20 small pre bisque fired items, 12 of which must be burnished. 1 larger item is allowed but can be no bigger than a 1 litre milk carton, this is due to space in the kiln. They must all be made from white Raku specific clay. I would highly recommend the clay available from POTCLAYS
