Raku Retreat

Half-Term week at Messums Creative will be dedicated to experiencing and learning about the exhilarating process of RAKU firing through a series of practical and theoretical courses and talks.

David Roberts’ RAKU ceramics will be exhibited at Messums Wiltshire.

Japanese in origin the RAKU firing method dates back to the 16th Century. The word itself loosely translates as ‘spontaneity’ or ‘enjoyment’.

In its Western interpretation, RAKU represents the drama and the excitement by revealing the part of the firing process which is normally hidden. RAKU is today associated with the joy of unpredictability and the pure hands-on drama of creating with heat and fire.

This is a great opportunity to learn, make, and fire using this unique process.
