Raku-U at Port Moody Festival of the Arts

We cannot display this gallery

Who: You and your family

What: Raku-U at Port Moody’s Art 4 U Day *

When: Sunday, Sept. 25, 11 a.m.-3 p.m.

Where: Parking lot behind the Port Moody Arts Centre, 2425 Saint Johns Street, Port Moody, BC

Why: Decorate your own pottery and help celebrate Port Moody Festival of the Arts‘ Art 4 U Day!

* At Raku-U, families and individuals can take part in an outside pottery firing. Raku is a type of pottery that was originally made in Japan. It can have a crackle effect, be brightly colored or pearly or metallic. It’s very beautiful and fun to do!! Starting at 11 a.m., small to medium-sized ceramic pieces will be sold for $5-10 in the Raku Area (parking lot behind the Arts Centre). After choosing your pieces, you glaze them for firing. They will be fired in special kilns that are set up outside. (The kilns are roped off and the area is safe for family members.) After your piece has cooled, you can take it home to enjoy! Arts Centre volunteers are on hand to help you each step of the way. Many people have been making figurines that will appeal to children for the event and I know they will be sure to please… Come on down!
