Come try Raku, an ancient Japanese ceramic firing technique, in NewMakeIt’s own backyard and make your own of a kind piece!⁠

Hand building will be taking place on the 6th of August - 10:30 PM - 1:30 and then on 21st of August -12:00 PM - 5:00 PM for the Firing. In these two classes, you will first have a chance to build 2-3 pieces or pots and in the second class, you will get to glaze and fire your creations!⁠
If you are a member and are interested in firing your own pieces, make sure your pieces are made with Raku clay which can be purchased at NewMakeIt and that they are ready for firing for the 21st of August. 
Raku is characterized by the removal of a clay object from the kiln at the height of the firing and causing it to cool very rapidly.  This will cause stress on the clay and may cause pieces to crack. Raku pieces are not food safe or water-sealed.
