Raku Demonstration and Community Kiln

Members of the public can glaze thier own tea bowl and watch Hawaii Craftsmen members fire it. 

Hawaii Craftsmen is pleased to announce the 2017 Raku Hoolaulea, an annual community raku ceramics workshop. Founded in 1977, the festival brings together ceramic artists to participate in raku and pit firing techniques. The community kiln offers the public a chance to participate in the exciting process of raku firing. 

The May Memorial Day weekend event is preceded by three free April events in central Honolulu:  a Japanese traditional tea ceremony demonstration, a tea bowl making workshop, and a Community Kiln. Artworks glazed and fired at the North Shore event in May will be juried by experts Shigeru Miyamoto (contemporary) and Marilyn Sochi Naka (traditional) for an exhibition in September. 

Hawaii Craftsmen, currently in its 50th Anniversary Year, celebrates fine craft as a vital and enriching part of contemporary life and supports the creative growth of our member artists and the education of the general public to the value of the crafts.
