Raku is a Japanese pottery technique traditionally for making cups used in tea ceremonies. The raku clay is molded by hand and fired in a raku kiln. The glaze is applied before the raku firing and while still glowing hot, the piece is removed from the kiln, suffering a thermal shock, and then immediately placed in a container with wood chips in order to smoke the naked ceramic.

This workshop will be offered by Tania Nasr and Tarek Mourad.
