Each participant will have 2-3 pieces fired during the workshop. Maximum size per piece 6”x6” base x 10” tall. Note: Raku fired pieces are non- functional. Small tuckers (small ceramic pieces) may be accommodated if there is space as well as additional pieces if space permits once all participants work has been fired. 

Safety

Only wear natural fibres as we will be around fire. The workshop takes place outside so make sure you come dressed to spend the whole day outside.  

Bring your own chair, food and drinks. May be chilly so a hot drink of tea, coffee or hot chocolate may be a good idea!   

The Guild will be following all Public Health Covid guidelines and  protocols in place at the time of the workshop. As this is a fluid situation we will ensure we follow the protocols for masks and social distancing required to conduct a safe workshop for everyone.
