Raku Pottery Firing at the Folk Art Center

June 9 @ 10:00 am - 4:00 pm | FREE EVENT

https://www.southernhighlandguild.org/event/clay-fest/

For six hours on Saturday, June 9, the hill behind the Folk Art Center on the Blue Ridge Parkway will be filled with twenty potters selling ceramic wares for both décor and function. Clay Fest is an annual Southern Highland Craft Guild event that celebrates the varied craft processes and techniques used with clay. The Guild’s makers are continuing the new elements of a festival to enhance the twenty-plus-year-old event. Alongside the Guild’s potters will be a handful of invited guest potters from across the country.

Raku potters Judi Harwood, Steven Forbes-deSoule and John Turner will be assisting attendees wanting to make their own raku pot. This ceramic firing process uses flames and smoke to create unique patterns and designs. Pots will be available for purchase for $10 and participants can glaze and then watch it be fired.
