Vad du kommer att göra

Now is the time to have some fun! Book an exciting Airbnb raku experience. Although the raku experience is spectacular at night, it is equally amazing during the daytime. Please contact us if you would prefer an afternoon experience.
Each guest will choose three bisqued ceramic pieces ready for glazing. Glaze will be supplied along with instructions on how to apply. After glazing, pieces are placed in the kiln ready to Raku. This process is the rapid firing of ceramic pieces. While the pieces are being fired, the guests will be outfitted with gloves and instructed on how to pull their pieces from the kiln with the tongs. When the kiln reaches optimum temperature, the lid is lifted exposing red hot pieces. The guests will remove pieces from kiln placing them in combustion chambers. After pieces are removed from chambers and cleaned, the guests will get to keep them in memory of their visit to the beautiful Central Coast.
Other things to note
Although Raku is a fun and exciting process, guests must be able to follow instructions and work in concert with each other while pulling ceramic pieces from hot kiln.

John Rose and Janice Stone, of Rose & Stone Pottery, live in beautiful San Luis Obispo County and have more than 30 years combined working with clay. John received his degree in Fine Arts and along with Janice, who has taken over a dozen ceramic classes, have conducted various ceramic workshops over the years. Their passion for ceramics, especially for raku, is borne out of the fact that with each piece created you can never predict the outcome.

Var ni kommer att vara

We will meet in our backyard in Arroyo Grande in San Luis Obispo County. All preparations will be performed in our working studio. The firing will take place outside under the night sky. We typically fire at night because of the dramatic visual effects and to monitor the firing more closely.

John & Janice were great hosts! They were very gracious and they made the entire experience fun & exciting. We learned a lot and we were really surprised at how beautiful our pieces turned out. Not only did we bring home beautiful works of art, we gained a new appreciation for Raku and we have wonderful memories of the experience.

Truly a fantastic experience that I cannot recommend highly enough. Our group loved the opportunity to learn more about Raku and to take home our own pieces. We also had a great time meeting the other guests. The process was interesting and educational -- and very atmospheric! The communication and directions were clear and Janice went out of her way to accommodate our party. We hope to be back the next time we are in the area!

My husband and I had a BLAST with Janice and John. They are true masters of their craft, but more importantly they are lovely people who I would happily spend my Saturday nights chatting with by the fire as our ceramics are getting ready for raku. We truly had an amazing time and will definitely be returning!

This is 10 out of 5 stars!! Absolutely fantastic! Janice and her husband were awesome people and made this experience a wonderful memory that we will never forget! We were 5 participants and 3 spectators. The guys who didn’t want to participate sat by the fire circle and had snacks and wine and played guitar while we did our thing but came to see what we were up to and in the end they want to come back and give it a try! We got plenty of good instruction before prepping our pots and put them in the very hot kilns. There were safety gloves and great safety precautions taken. I can’t even describe how exciting it was for us all to see how our pots turned out! The backyard where this all takes place incredibly charming and filled with sculpture that Janice’s husband has made over the years. Janice took pics through the entire process and I can’t wait to see them. Literally a perfect evening that we will all be taking about for years! Hopefully we will be back early next year to do it again!!

Raku with Janice and her husband was a wonderful experience with opportunities to glaze, design and fire three unique pieces using different methods. They were welcoming and patient with beginners, offering advice, but plenty of creative control. You can tell they are passionate about ceramics and eager to introduce others to the art. The backyard, studio and fire pit were all great places to pass our time.

We will, We will RAKU! My group and I had THE best time hanging out and creating with Janice and John! Everything is set up in their backyard/gallery/studio. Janice and John are very gracious and friendly hosts. They are also conscientious about COVID safety and we appreciated that very much. There were three in our group and we each took home three lovely pieces that are so gorgeous and they each have a story. What lovely take-aways! There was great music playing, lovely small bites and we were able to bring a bottle of wine all of which made for a lovely time. I learned cool things about Raku techniques and glazes and now have an interest in learning and doing more work with clay and ceramics. If you are in the area, this is absolutely a worthwhile experience. I HIGHLY RECOMMEND IT! #wewillraku
