Like most great ideas, Mobile Raku was born out of necessity. While teaching classes at schools and institutions, Brett Thomas had a following of students, “regulars”, who were eager to fire at every chance they got. They would bribe him to do extra firings before or after class.  Eventually the class became non-stop firings. Brett had to take some of the firings out of class so that there was still studio time. He is not one to disappoint my students so Brett developed “Mobile Raku”. By assembling a studio and kiln, Brett created Mobile Raku, a ceramics studio on wheels.  He can travel to any location in the continental U.S. The mobile studio has everything that is necessary to conduct a raku workshop. Mobile Raku allows Brett to teach at all levels, from children to adults, as well as a wide variety of skill levels.

We are thrilled to have Brett at The Academy Craft Show to provide demonstrations and conduct on-site lessons.  Please reserve your spot – only 10 students per class!
