Raku Hoʻolauleʻa is focused around a weekend of communing, glazing and firing ceramic artworks by the beach at Camp Mokulēʻia.  Participants are organized in groups, each with their own kilns, equipment and glazes. Jurying of artwork for the exhibition will take place at the beach on Sunday morning prior to striking camp. Participating artists must register in advance with Hawaiʻi Craftsmen, and the public is invited to visit and watch the firings all weekend.

Every effort will be made to accommodate group requests. Kilns and pit fire containers must be elevated above the surface to minimize scorching the ground.
