<p><!– wp:heading –></p> <h2>Fire, Smoke and Spontaneity with Mitch and Barb Messina</h2> <p><!– /wp:heading –></p> <p><!– wp:paragraph –></p> <p>Main Street Arts, in partnership with Nazareth College, offers a unique raku and horsehair firing workshop. The first day we will explore using clay two different ways. Kurinuki, a solid shaping technique that we will raku fire along with a slab construction technique that we will finish with a horsehair firing. The second day—<em>firing day!</em>— will be at Nazareth College, where we will experience both firing methods resulting in unique finishes.</p> <p><!– /wp:paragraph –></p> <p><!– wp:paragraph –></p> <p><em>*** For safety reasons all participants must wear cotton long sleeve shirts and closed toed shoes on firing day.</em> ***</p> <p><!– /wp:paragraph –></p> <p><!– wp:paragraph –></p> <p><strong>Class 1: </strong>Saturday, July 9 2022, 12–3 p.m. (at Main Street Arts)<br /><strong>Class 2:</strong> Saturday, July 16 2022, 12–3 p.m. (at Nazareth College)</p> <p><!– /wp:paragraph –></p> <p><!– wp:paragraph –></p> <p><!– /wp:paragraph –></p> <p><!– wp:image {"id":21062,"sizeSlug":"large","linkDestination":"media"} –></p> <figure class="wp-block-image size-large"><a href="https://mainstreetartscs.org/wp-content/uploads/2022/06/FireSmoke_images2.jpg"><img src="https://mainstreetartscs.org/wp-content/uploads/2022/06/FireSmoke_images2-1024×640.jpg" alt="" class="wp-image-21062"/></a></figure> <p><!– /wp:image –></p> <p><!– wp:paragraph –></p> <p><em>Programming at Main Street Arts is made possible in part by the New York State Council on the Arts with the support of the Office of the Governor and the New York State Legislature.</em></p> <p><!– /wp:paragraph –></p>
