Raku Ceramics Courses with

Catherine Lucktaylor

***This is the final year of my Raku courses for a while as I am taking some time out from teaching next year. Keep an eye on my Behind the Scenes Blog to keep up to date with new developments***

Have you always wanted to try Raku but not sure where to start?

I am delighted to invite you to join me in my recently refurbished large rural studio in the beautiful location of Bejowans Farm in far west Cornwall to unleash your creativity and learn some new skills.

There is a choice of beginners and advanced courses for small groups of no more than 6, which ensures you get individual attention.

I have many years experience of the Raku process and enjoy creating a relaxed and inspiring space for you to explore the joys of Raku firing your own handmade creations. 

You will learn ancient hand building techniques and how to successfully glaze and fire your creations using the exciting process of Raku firing.

For more details and to book your creative Raku adventure follow the links below. Don't delay as places get booked up fast and I don't want you to be disappointed.

After refining my techniques over many years I have made all the mistakes so you don't have to!

If you have any questions please get in touch.


This course is aimed at those with some experience of ceramics. Follow the link below for more details and booking. Only 6 places available to ensure you get individual and expert tuition. 


This 3 day advanced Raku course is a perfect follow on to the introductory courses.
The course runs over 3 Sundays which gives you more time to expand and explore the possibilities of Raku.


Catherine Lucktaylor gives a very informative and friendly course on Raku making and firing. She is a good instructor with a great knowledge of the subject and is able to make us feel both competent and creative.
Catherine is a welcoming and a warm person to work with.
Highly recommended.
