Rad Raku!
Mondays, April 1 – May 20 (6 classes*)
*No Class April 15, April 22
Teaching Artist: Talon Smith
Open to: All Experience Levels
This is a class where you will learn about the history of raku, creating work for a raku kiln, and can experiment! Raku is a process where we take hot pots—around 1,800 degrees Fahrenheit—out of the kiln and toss them in a pile of sawdust that immediately ignites in a ball of fire that gives us a variety of surfaces. It’s a fun and pyrotechnic process!

Oh! For the Love of Atmosphere!

Yo! I said it’s cold in here! There must be some soda in the atmosphere! In this class we will be producing sculptural, wheel-thrown and hand-built work to put into the soda kiln. When we fire the soda kiln, we will be spraying baking soda in the kiln at 2300 degrees Fahrenheit. This will create unique surfaces on the pieces you put in the kiln.

Do a self-portrait or pick your favorite character and make a sculpture of their head. This course will introduce students to the fundamental sculptural processes of addition, subtraction, and substitution. Emphasis will be placed on students studying and creating human facial anatomy. We will build up the skills to create believable features and proportions for your life like, or not so life like creations!

Learn, or continue to learn how to use the potter’s wheel. In this class, we are going to focus on how to get centered and become one with the wheel to make some pottery that you can really use. Design your ideal dinner set. Or make a statement with your mugs, bowls, and plates. If it’s on the wheel we can make it!
