This class will focus on Raku firing, an alternative firing process where pieces are removed from the kiln around 1800*F and placed in a “reduction chamber” filled with carbon-based materials which will give smoky colorations and patterns. The results are atmospheric and difficult to control, making it an exciting and dynamic process. Students will be glazing & firing pieces made by Hacienda Clay&Kiln staff and will be able to take their pieces home at the end of the class! 

Health & Safety - Protective gear (gloves & tongs) will be provided, but students will need to wear closed-toed shoes, have long hair tied back, and avoid loose-fitting clothing which may get caught on items in the kiln yard.

  • Classes will be charged individually at $75/person
  • Tools & glazes will be included
  • Class is limited to 12 students; 3 students needed to fill class 
  • Students will either use provided raku-ready, bisque pieces (made by Clay+Kiln staff) OR bring their own bisque (no porcelain)
