Raku Pottery Courses - Fish

Our Pottery Holidays are a great way of spending some relaxing time in the beautiful and secluded coastal village of Welcombe in North Devon. The sea is less than half a mile away and there are long stretches of coastal path that offer spectacular views across the vast and ever-changing Atlantic Ocean.

With formal tuition in the morning our pottery holidays give you the opportunity to either work on in the afternoon or perhaps you might want to swim at the beach or explore the area.

You can learn and explore some simple methods of making raku pottery without using a wheel. The possibilities are endless using hand building techniques including slab building, coiling and moulding, you can make all manner of decorative pottery on our pottery holidays. You will have the opportunity to make and fire a number of pottery items of your choice and learn how to apply glazes and then go on to raku fire them in our gas raku pottery kiln.
