Join Joe Robinson for a one-day introduction to raku firing at East Creek Art Center in Oregon's coastal mountains. No experience required, just show up, adorn 2 hand-thrown pots, and experience the magic of a raku firing! (Purchase additional pieces to fire for $20 per pot) 

Raku pieces are heated to 1,800F and pulled red hot from the kiln. Smoke, flame and excitement abound! Take your pots home the same day. Joe is offering options to extend your experience at East Creek, including free camping on the property on Saturday evening, cabin lodging options for an additional charge, and/or make a personal wood fired pizza for $15 pp. For info on additional options, please email Joe directly: joe@eastcreekart.org

Built in 1983, the kiln is the second of its kind in the US. East Creek is pleased to host guests overnight with space to camp, tiny cabins and a bunkhouse.
