Raku Day Workshops.

You can bring your own bisque fired pots or small sculptures (please contact us for information on the best clays to use for raku). Alternatively you can purchase the pots and dishes that we make for the workshops. There is a small charge between £2 – £4, for pots made by us that you can then glaze and fire.

We like everyone to get involved in the firing and get close to the action therefore you must wear clothes that are made from natural fabric and that cover your arms and legs. Sturdy shoes are a must as workshops take place in the Westbury garden.
