Saturdays, 3 or 6 classes

Where there’s smoke, there’s fire, and with raku, there’s lots of both. American Raku has been called short attention span theater for potters. There is no faster way to get a finished piece than raku. However, that doesn’t make it easy. Martin Bimler has been firing raku since 2012 and is ready to share with you the tips, tricks, and special knowledge he has gathered in his years of experience.
