Raku Pottery meets BBQ in this HOT workshop hosted by the Masur Museum and Alyssa Guidry of Wild Phlox Pottery! Raku is a low-fire method in which the ceramic ware is heated quickly to 1800 degrees F, removed from the kiln when the glaze has melted and the pieces are still glowing hot, and placed in combustible material which burns around the ware staining it with smoke. Participants in the workshop will receive a pre-bisque fired cylinder to decorate with Raku glaze however they choose. Participants will glaze their cylinders using crayon wax resist, masking tape resist and a variety of painting techniques. The ware will be glazed and fired in two batches at the Raku-B-Q from 4-8 pm on June 8. Each firing takes about an hour so enjoy a burger and kick back with a beer while the kiln is doing all the work! Each cylinder will be numbered, and the number will correspond to the participants name on the sign up list so BE SURE TO FILL OUT THE FORM BELOW AFTER PURCHASING YOUR TICKETS THROUGH PAYPAL TO ENSURE YOUR NAME GOES ON THE LIST. Participation in the Raku Workshop is $40 for Museum Members and $50 for Non-members. Ages 16+ only please! Participants MUST be at the event by no later than 4:00 PM to guarantee enough time to glaze and fire the ware. Workshop spaces are limited and pre-registration is required, so sign up now! If rain is forecast to douse our fun, we will re-schedule Raku-B-Q!
