Bring your Personal Tools and Materials
for the Following Workshops

While we have made every effort to provide some of the supplies necessary for workshops, we need participants to gather some of their own tools and supplies as well. Our generous vendors are helping as much as they can, but to keep costs reasonable and to make sure you are using clay compatible with your own firing practices, please bring the materials related to your workshop(s).

RAKU – Sue Jensen, Maya Blume-Cantrell and Jo Taylor - Saturday 5:00-8:00 PM

  •  Bring one piece made of raku clay (no porcelain: the rapid heating and cooling during firing is likely to stress fine clay bodies. Make sure your piece is made of a low-fire, heavily grogged clay) that is already bisqued, no bigger than 5” in any direction. We are NOT providing pre-made pieces!
  •  If you have a favorite raku glaze you would like to share, please bring about a quart or half-gallon, along with a sample of a piece (or glaze sample) you have made with it, and the formula or recipe.
  • We wil set up an early glazing station at the conference center on Saturday afternoon at the hotel. At 4 PM, we have a volunteer willing to take pre-glazed pieces out to AUM for pre-heating.
  • Bring some brushes!
