26 – 27 AUG 2022 RAKU Workshop in Kavalouri – Corfu
A raku firing workshop is a unique experience to create an impressive ceramic art piece in Corfu and get it with you.
Select a pot or sculpture you like from a variety of unglazed ceramic pieces, and get ready for glazing and raku firing.
You will learn how to decorate your piece with crackle and/or copper metallic glazes, create unique textures and eye catching colors.
You will get detailed instructions and you will learn glazing techniques, about this art and the raku firing method.
The breathtaking moment is the raku firing. We will put a few pieces in the raku kiln and fire it with gas for 40 minutes. When the temperature reach 1000C, we will open the kiln, pull out the hot pieces and put them in metallic garbage cans with sawdust to create a reduction enviroment that is needed for our spectacular colors and black smoke.
After cooling in 45 minutes, you will clean your piece to reveal the colors. You will be amazed from the results and be proud for the piece of art you have created.
Glazing and firing will take place in my studio. A large yard behind, and a veranda is perfect for the raku firing. My studio is located to the road for Zoodochos Pigi church, in Kavalouri.
