Raku is an ancient pottery art form that came originally from Japan. The word means enjoyment and ease. The Raku firing leads to very unpredictable results, intense colours and flashes of metal lustres across the surface of the work.
Workshops at Portico Gallery 23a Knights Hill, West Norwood, SE27 0HS. £25 per person for the workshop. £40 for the firing sessions. The costs include all materials, and two pieces of work glazed and fired. A raku kiln will be built especially for this workshop. You can come along and just watch the live firings for free!
