Romberg workshops deal not only with issues particular to Raku ceramics but also engage the creative and critical practices essential to significant work. Short-term presentations over one or two days or longer of any duration are available. We deal primarily with bisque fired work to be glazed and fired in the Raku spirit.  Longer workshops cover important aspects of ceramics ranging from working with wet clay to the aesthetic and technical aspects of studio ceramics.
