The only workshop that lets you take home a finished pot the same day! Come join in the exciting interactive firing method of Raku! In this traditional Japanese technique, pots are pulled from the kiln red-hot to be quenched in burnable materials! You’ll get to pick a professionally thrown pot to custom-glaze with special finishes just for Raku. Have the thrill of the firing plus you’ll get a bonus beginning throwing lesson while the kiln heats up!

Makes a great experience for clay and pyrotechnic aficionados, plus it’s the only workshop where you can take home a finished pot the day-of. Makes a great souvenir for visitors to Missoula and long-time residents alike, plus a unique experience you’ll never forget!


Chosen pots will be glaze-fired over the course of this workshop, and will be the participant’s to take home at the end of the session once it has cooled to safe handling temperature.


Workshop fee covers having one professionally thrown pot prepped and bisque fired for you to decorate with shop glazes, and firing fees for a participatory Raku glaze firing led by one of our experienced instructors. Plus, instruction and materials to participate in a beginning throwing lesson so you can try the potter’s wheel while the Raku kiln heats up. Cylinders created during the beginning lesson will not be kept.


Workshop is limited to 8 students maximum.
