Introduction to Raku with Muddy Fingers
- Event date:
- 18th September 2021
- Walltown Country Park
Come and paint some pots, Raku style, with Muddy Fingers Pottery. And new for 2021 we will also be doing a horsehair pot too!
Using various bespoke Muddy Fingers glazes and different glaze resist technique, you will paint up your pots ready to be fired in the Raku kiln. The pots get fired until the glaze melts at around 950 degrees Celsius. They are taken out of the kiln at that top temperature and placed into a tightly covered sawdust bin for the post reduction magic to happen.
Lots of copper, silver and bronze colours will develop at this stage. Once cooled down a little, they are taken out of the bin and placed into a bucket of water for final cooling and ready to clean down. The pots are then dried and ready to take home in around an hour.
