Professional Development Workshop for Teachers

Summer 2018 will be the first year for Ro Shaw Clay Studio to host development workshops for teachers!  I am excited to share with you the process of Raku firing and Raku kiln building!  This workshop will take place over 3 days in the Historical District of Salado, Tx!  We will cover the basics of making pottery, finishing techniques and finish firing.  You can also purchase a kiln kit which you can take with you to share with your students!  One day Wheel Throwing workshops are available also.  If your school or district would like to schedule demonstration or workshops please feel free to contact me at anytime!
