Eeles Pottery- Raku Firing Experience

Sat 28 May

Eeles Pottery Mosterton Beaminster DT8 3HN

My Raku Firing Experience Day is a thorough and fun introduction to decorating and firing unique Raku pottery. The art of Raku firing is Japanese style of pottery which originated in the 16th century.
You will select up to three pots to decorate and choose between four different raku techniques; copper fumed raku, naked raku, glazed raku & horse hair raku
You will then have the opportunity to get hands on and fire these expertly thrown pots using the fine art of Raku, choosing between placing them in sawdust or a smoking tin to create your distinct pot.
