Raku & You

Raku is a centuries old pottery glazing and firing process. The technique produces a lustrous, often metallic, finish. Raku & You is an evening devoted to this ancient process. Attendees choose from a number of bisque fired pots and are introduced to the history of Raku while applying glaze to their pot in their own unique design. While the outdoor kiln heats up to the correct temperature; attendees enjoy a picnic-style meal. Then the fun begins as red hot pottery is plunged into metal containers filled with combustible material. The containers are lidded and the pots rest for a few moments before being quickly cooled with water. The results are spectacular and everyone is invited back into the studio to view each piece. Everyone goes home with their very own raku masterpiece. The evening begins at 5:30pm and ends at 8:30pm. The price for the event is $55 per person. Call the Center for the Arts, 239-495-8989 to register. Interested in a private Raku & You event? Contact the Center for Visual Arts, 239-495-8989, for more information.
