Have kiln, will travel! Ceramic artist and educator Brett Thomas returns to Chestertown with his Mobile Raku studio and kiln: a ceramics studio on wheels with full teaching facilities right on the Clay Studio’s doorstep. Following the success of his previous visit in November, Brett will again conduct a full day Raku workshop on Court Road, just down the block from the Clay Studio.

Class will meet in the Clay Studio in the morning to discuss glazes, under glazes, and glaze application and then head outside where his kilns will be operating. The class will work together as a team with the instructor, learning proper techniques and procedures to achieve beautiful colors. Ample time will be provided for questions and answers about students’ work after the last firing.

Students should bring their bisque ware to the workshop. Standard 239 Raku, clay body is recommended for this class. Work should be no wider than 6 inches wide and 12 inches tall—no flat slabs or huge bowls. Please, no glazing of other glazes. All necessary glazes will be provided.
