I’ve always wanted to learn how to Raku on my own! So, I’m pretty excited about this!
Stefan Jakob’s Raku Kiln Building Workshop is coming up on the weekend of Oct 26, 27, 28th at the Gold Coast Potters’ Association.
Looks like fun!
Raku Kiln Building with Stefan Jakob from Switzerland
In the past 15 years, Stefan Jakob has built around 2,000 raku ‘Ikea rubbish bin’ kilns all over Europe. He’s quite the character, setting up in the streets and sharing his love of raku with the world. In October, Stefan will be coming to the Gold Coast and hosting a workshop which will include making ceramic pieces (under Stefan’s expert tuition) then building your own wood fired ‘rubbish bin’ kiln, which you get to take home, then firing your work on the Sunday.
A booking form will be included in next month’s newsletter and it’s likely the workshop will fill very quickly so make a note to get your deposit in ASAP.
Cost for the 3 day workshop, including your own kiln to take home, is only $250 for members. If you only want to watch the kiln making process and join in the raku firing the cost is only $100 for members.
A $50 deposit will be required to ensure your place. Bookings: Megan Puls 5578 2195
