Arrival and Vessel Choice: Walk through the front gate and into the courtyard to meet with your section, there will be 15 people per section. Once everyone in your section has arrived, (please arrive on time, we have a schedule to maintain!) you will select a vessel and then head upstairs into our studio.

Glazing: Here you will be instructed on how to glaze your pot by a Pewabic Education Staff member. You’ll have about 45 minutes to do so.

Drying: Then your section’s pots will be placed in a warming kiln for about 45 minutes then off to the Outdoor Raku Kiln Pad it goes!

Firing: Once we’ve loaded all of your section’s pots into the Raku Kiln it will fire for about 45 minutes, then it will be pulled from the hot kiln and sent through the Western Raku process for your viewing pleasure! 

Cooling: After letting the pot sit and cool for about 15 minutes, it will be ready for its new home! 

What to do while I wait: While you wait for your pot to dry, fire, and cool you can explore our retail space or venture to our historic museum upstairs. Feel free to bring a snack or a tasty beverage to sip in our courtyard!
