This two-day master workshop will take place on Thursday, February 18th and Friday, February 19th from 9:30 am-4:30 pm on each day.

Copper Matt Raku is one of the more difficult firing processes to achieve consistently good results. This workshop will focus on the “elusive” Copper Matt Raku firing process. Included in the workshop is all the information needed: clay bodies, glaze recipe, equipment & tools. Along with Copper Matt firing, demonstrations of Horsehair, Naked Raku, and simple aluminum foil sagger firing can be shown. Participants will need to bring 2-3 bisque-fired pots to Cone 06. It would be recommended the pieces be made with a “raku” clay body or a high-dire stoneware with grog to avoid the possibility of cracking. Recommended levels: Beginner through advanced.

Class will be held in the CERAMICS BUILDING
