    This Raku session is slightly different from others that we have run at QPAC. We will be using items like horse hair, feathers, sugar and other flammable items, to create a decorative effect.

    To get the best effect for your items, please pick up a handout about how to prepare your pots in advance as there is some additional preparation that will really help give a polished finish to your work. This will be available from Queens Park - email info@qpc.org for details.

    Bring 4-6 bisque-fired pieces with you to use on the day
