Come and enjoy the captivating art of Raku pottery in the gardens at The Tawny Hotel. This ancient Japanese art, originally associated with making treasured tea bowls for the traditional tea ceremony, features dramatic 'live' kiln firings. 

You’ll be offered a choice of pre made biscuit fired pots and then guided through a variety of creative glazing methods, combining tradition with Andy’s individual techniques. Your pots will go through a rapid firing and finally emerge from smouldering ashes revealing the special qualities of Raku - a combination of earthy tones, metallic effects and rich deep colours.
