Atelier de Raku avec Sara Mills
Saturday, August 25, 2018: 10:30 to 12:30 & 2 to 4 p.m.
The Raku firing technique originated in 16th century Japan. It was used for the production of bowls for the Tea Ceremony at that time. The glaze firing takes place in a small outdoor kiln which is heated to the melting point of the glaze (1000 C) then placed in a metal container filled with sawdust or other combustible material. The sudden change in temperature crackles the glaze. Flames & smoke envelop the work creating flashes of bright lustrous colours. All pieces are unique.
Cost: $20 per bowl. There will be a selection of varying bowls to choose from. Glaze (10 + glazes available) and firing included (each participant glazes and scrubs the bowls they have chosen).
The exhibition FABRIC OF LIFE is curated by Sandra Miville in collaboration with Studio Georgeville. Eastern Townships artists Marie Montiel, Sandra Tremblay, Amélie Pomerleau and Johanne Bilodeau will exhibit works on the theme of the everyday life of women.
