In August, USI's New Harmony Gallery of Contemporary Art and Division of Outreach and Engagement will offer two Raku Weekend Workshops with national, regional, and local artists at the Sarah Campbell Blaffer Studio in New Harmony, Indiana.

Led by Lenny Dowhie, USI professor emeritus of art, and other visiting artists, workshop participants will receive basic instructions on how to work with clay and raku fire. Students will make, fire, and glaze their own pieces and test works of clay.

Those wishing to enroll may register to attend one or both of the workshops. Here are the schedules:
