2011 Raku "Burn Party" - invitation

Another Afternoon of Friends, Fumes, and Frivolity
What:       Raku and saggar firing, pit firing, eating and drinking on a Camano Island beach.
When:      Saturday, September 10, 2011     10 AM to 5 PM **
Where:    Camano Country Club – Beach Two - 1433 Beach Drive, Camano Island.
                        Go south on East Camano Drive.  It’s about 5 miles past Camano Plaza to Beach Drive.  Go left onto Beach Drive. There’s a sign that says Camano Country Club at the entrance to the road. (If you see Windemere Realty or the Fire Station you went too far. Turn around and go back.)  Follow Beach Drive past the Country Club clubhouse and through the neighborhood and down to the waterfront.  Curve right on Beach Drive, and drive south through the beach neighborhood.  Immediately after the road turns right to go up the hill you will see the gate to Beach Two on your left.
Parking: There’s a nice parking lot but carpooling is still encouraged
Food:    Bring lots.  Mostly finger & snack food that can be shared and be munched between the firings.  BYOB, again, lots, as it can get hot and thirsty out there.  We will have some ice and chests, but bring yours too.
Gear:    Bring raku kilns, glazes, combustibles, tongs, scrub pads, heavy gloves & tongs if you have them.  Heavy duty aluminum foil for saggar and pit applications.  Horse hair if you can get it.
Pots:      Bring bisque pots.  Max 3 for raku.  Max 12” tall & no tiny pieces. Terra sigillata for saggar and pit (best if bisqued no higher than cone 010).  Size of pit will allow only one pot each.
Also:       For your comfort, bring lawn chairs, bug spray, hats, sunglasses.
