Explore the hands-on process of raku, pit and horsehair firing. During this intense course, students will fire multiple raku kilns, fire our own pit kiln as well as learn the process of horsehair firing. Students should be ready to work hard in a hot environment and welcome the unexpected and unpredicted! Students will leave with unique, one-of-a-kind, finished pots, an amazing experience, and wealth of knowledge.
