Members and non-members welcome.

If you haven't been part of a raku firing before, they are fun, dramatic, and yield unpredictable but breathtaking results.

Get involved with handling glowing things! Our raku expert, David, will run this event providing our members with an opportunity to fire a few items.


Time: 6pm


Kiln set up - 5.30pm

Briefing and firing from - 6pm



Bring bisque fired work that is thin and even. Small stuff survives while bigger things benefit from a good Raku clay.  Pieces under 180mm. Raku glazes are labelled and in kiln room for use. Areas left unglazed will be blacks and greys. Glossy copper gives best results on its own (no glaze under or over). Dark colours don't show the crackle as well. Bigger, smooth areas are more likely to crackle.  Raku glazes will damage other kilns so glaze pieces to be stored in area designated by Larissa. Some glazing can be done on the day but hopefully most will be done before so it is dry and we can start firing straight away.



There will be a $10 fee for members and $14 for non-members, that also covers your Open Studio session for the evening. There is a small fee for the area taken up in the kiln. A Raku firing sheet will be used to calculate the kiln space and remaining cost. less
