One Friday per month from 6–9 p.m., groups gather to turn pottery into works of art. Participants can choose a piece of pre-made pottery at the facility, schedule to make their own pottery by the Tuesday before the firing, or bring in a piece from home to glaze and fire. The raku style of firing is a multistep process that involves heating the glazed pottery with a type of propane-fired kiln, then flame-firing it before giving it a water-bath. All materials are included. See the next available date here.
The pottery lining the shelves inside Mighty Mud almost looks like it could have come from an archaeological excavation. With glaze jobs that call to shabby-chic sensibilities or enhance they clay’s hand-worked grooves, each work would be at home either on a windowsill or in a museum. The fun begins when it comes time to make these pieces. Mighty Mud offers classes that teach students how to throw clay, operate a pottery wheel, and build figures by hand. Kids even get their own set of classes catered just to them, and group raku firings happen once a month when the firing process is turned into a group BYOB activity.
