Chastain Hosts Pop-up Raku Workshop on August 3


On Saturday, August 3, Chastain Arts Center and Gallery will host a Raku workshop with instructor Bob Petersen. During the workshop, students will learn the general history, philosophy and methods of firing ceramics in a Raku Kiln. In addition, glazing techniques will be taught and put into practice. Whether this is your first time Raku firing or you have experience, all levels are welcome to participate.

What to bring:

Please avoid bringing:

Also, be aware that Raku firing does not produce work suitable for food service and vessels may be too porous to hold liquid.

Note: Do to time constraints for the workshop, we cannot guarantee all pieces will be fired.
