Glaze Your Own Raku Bowl FOR KIDS ONLY!!! May 17 - 21 2021
Hey kids!!! Come out and be a part of a live raku firing by glazing your own raku bowl and watching it get fired in the kiln! This event includes a raku bowl and a mini raku lesson and is geared towards kids 5 - 15 years of age (no experience necessary). Since there are limited spots in the kiln, we ask that parents only purchase bowls for KIDS, not for themselves. Due to the dangers of the kiln viewing area there MUST be a parent or guardian present. If you'd like to bring a group of older kids (9-15 yrs old), please provide 1 parent or guardian for every 4 children. Young kids (5-8 yrs old) will most likely need parent supervision so parents please plan to stay with your child.
Preregister below then come to Althouse Pottery on your scheduled date and time to glaze a handmade bowl made by Carrie with a variety of glaze colors. When finished, students will watch the firing process (about 45 minutes long) from loading into the kiln, firing to temperature, and reducing into flames in a metal trashcan of sawdust and paper. Students will then get a chance to scrub any black soot off, dry and seal it and then take it home. Please allow approx. 2 hours for the total process.

**Raku pottery is NOT FOOD SAFE and is NOT WATERTIGHT. Consider it like terra cotta. They are great for planting plants that take little water such as succulents, or for holding things such as desk supplies, candles, wrapped candies, etc. or simply just use for decoration.
