Raku! Clay Heart Rattle Class – Ages 14+ (Three classes) Jan. 27, Feb. 3 & Feb. 10.

Sculpt your own ceramic rattle and experience the magic of RAKU!

  • Learn hand-building clay techniques, no experience necessary!
  • Create a unique piece of sculpted clay art, AND experience the magic of RAKU firing – a traditional Japanese process in which artists are involved directly with the final firing in which the basic elements of earth, air, fire and water are utilized to create beautiful and very unique results!
  • Fee covers all supplies to create one project, including raku firing* which will be a 3 hour class.

Clay rattles have been around in many cultures for thousands of years…musical instruments….made out of the earth! They are surprising, fun and beautiful! During the first class Jan. 27th (2 hours) , you will learn to create your own rattle and personalize it. Then: When it’s dry, we will bisque fire your work in our kiln

  • Class 2 Feb. 3rd (two hours) : we apply glaze to our fired rattles, learn and discuss the process of Raku.
  • Class 3 Feb. 10th (3 hours): we actively participate in the process of raku. It’s a very ‘hands-on’ process, which you may choose how much you would like to actively participate in, or simply watch and allow us to handle things :)
  • THIS CLASS IS VERY LIMITED IN SIZE, PLEASE RESERVE YOUR SPOT EARLY!
