Raku firing is an exciting ceramics-firing technique in which you quickly heat a piece of pottery, remove it from the kiln when the glaze has melted, and place it in a bucket of wood shavings, which can be explosive! Ceramic artist Laremy Ellsworth will cover the entire process of Raku firing, from preparing the piece for glazing to cleaning the piece after the firing. You’ll learn about how different glazes react to this unique firing process to result in striking effects and one-of-a-kind pieces. Best of all, you’ll create your own piece to take home. Once you’ve completed the class, you’ll understand why ‘Raku’ translates to ‘enjoyment.’

“Photography for Life” is a series of nature photography courses that uses the rules of composition to discuss how to compose both our images and our lives in a more intentional way. Nature photography gives us a tool for being more aware of the beauty around us, which opens us up to new understandings of ourselves and our connection to the world. In this workshop, we will explore and express complex ideas, expand curiosity, experiment with creativity, and embark on new adventures with nature photography as our guide. From classroom instruction and group discussion, to hands-on experience, we will focus our minds, practice self-care, and express ideas in a creative, adventurous, and intentional way. No matter your photographic experience, skill level, or style of camera, there will be something to be gained, as this is not a technological workshop, but a deeper exploration of how we experience life. This session will focus on the rule of thirds, which will create greater organization of your images and your wellness routines.
