Raku Firing Workshop: Christian Bailey
Please join us for a fun raku workshop led by Gulfport artist Christian Bailey. Students will be able to bring pots they have already created and bisque fired to glaze and raku fire at our studio. Bisque pots will also be available for purchase to glaze and fire. If you are not familiar with raku firing, this is a wonderful way to become engaged in the fun of working with clay and fire! You’ll take your pots home with you the same day, too.
Date: Saturday, April 8, 2017
Cost: $45 per student
Class specifics: Students should bring 2 bisque fired pots approximately 5” x 5” in size to class, or be prepared to purchase small pots for glazing and firing. There is a limit of 15 students for this class. Glazing, firing, and instruction are included in the class fee. Traditionally, raku firing encourages a pot luck lunch atmosphere, so please bring along a favorite dish to share! We have restaurants nearby if you would like to grab lunch.
