Raku means Joy

$100

with Jemma Gascoine

Jun 9, 2016 at 5 pm, runs for 6 weeks

Raku means 'Joy' in Japanese. It is a unique way of firing and decorating the surface of a pot. The firing process uses propane and takes place outside. It is a hot and smokey affair but the spontaneous results can be thrilling. We will aim to make 3-4 works each for the firing, including a dish and a vase. I will teach several hand-building projects. The workshop does have 4 potter's wheels for the curious to try out or for the experienced to practice on. Beginner's are welcome.

Aprons and clean-up rags are useful. Bring pottery tools if you have them.

Jemma Gascoine has ten years of experience teaching pottery classes and clay workshops to all ages. She has been selling her functional pottery nationally for sixteen years and has shown her sculptural work at galleries and museums around the state of Maine. She founded and co-owns the Monson Pottery Workshop in Monson.
