Ceramic Workshop for Children - Session 2
Friday, 24th July
2pm - 5pm
Obvara Firing Session
All children must be accompanied by a responsible adult.
The pots you made on DAY 1 will have been biscuit fired ready for the Obvara firing in the Raku kiln. You will see your pot being taken out of the hot kiln and plunged into a mixture of yeast, sugar and water for a second or two. When it comes out of the Obvara mixture, you will see it change its appearance magically before your eyes! It then goes into a bucket of cold water to cool. When it is cool, you will have a unique, and special, creation to take home.
