Tea-Cup and Raku Firing Workshop - March 25th to 27th

Serra da Lousã

The Tea-Cup and Raku Firing Workshop starts with the ancient technique of bowl making, with a ball of clay. The participants will create a collection of Chawan tea-cups, sculpting the clay and giving form to our tea mugs.

Looking for the relationship between the object and the hand, the workshop explores the balance of form and dimension in a rhythmic cadence of time like a pulse and proposes the construction of a memory about knowing how to do, the expression that each one can transmit to matter, each moment of contemplation, the reunion with oneself in a cup of tea.

The highlight of this workshop is always the Raku firing! The participants will decorate their set of cups of tea with glazes and ceramic dyes and then submit them to the action of fire in the Raku kiln, for about 30 minutes. They can enjoy the incandescent pieces when they come out of the kiln and we are surprised by the effects produced by this process!

- Production of Chawan tea cups with the ancestral technique of Phinching;
- Making bisque firing;
- Preparation of glazes for use in Raku cooking;
- Decoration techniques for Raku.
