When most potters in the West think of raku firing, they think of what should technically be referred to as “American” or “Western” raku: a process in which work is removed from the kiln at bright red heat and subjected to post-firing reduction (or smoking) by being placed in containers of combustible materials, which blackens raw clay and causes crazing in the glaze surface.

This Western raku firing process has a huge draw for many potters because of its excitement and unpredictability.

After all, what’s not to love about playing with fire?!

Woody Holler and His Orchestra • Main Stage Event

  • Prairie Fusion Arts & Entertainment (map)
  • Google Calendar ICS

Woody Holler grew up on the Canadian prairie hearing the songs of the cowboy. Although he was later trained in opera, a sense of nostalgia held him close to those western roots. In 2009, Woody teamed up with some of Winnipeg’s finest jazz musicians and began purveying his own brand of Western Swing that Woody defines as “jazz from the saddle”. The show is reminiscent of a 1940s radio show with a sound that is nostalgic yet thrilling. The music involves clever arrangements rich with virtuosity and style. The repertoire is eclectic, fun and fascinating, featuring finger-snapping swing beats, honey-slowed love croons, a dash of opera, and show stopping “extreme” yodeling.

Genre(s): Western Swing, Jazz, Blues

Doors open at 7:00 p.m.
Show starts at 7:30 p.m.

Tickets: $32

Watercolour paints give you a great sense of freedom. One can travel anywhere with nothing but some paper, brushes, and a watercolour kit! When working with watercolours, you learn the techniques and skills to work with precision and the ability to just let go when the paint wants to move on its own. Through hands-on demonstrations, we will look at brush and painting techniques, highlights and shadows, colour theory, and composition. You will learn how to work with the paint, find your own voice, and have fun with this exciting medium.

Classes for Teens to Adults • Hands-on Photography: Beginner to Intermediate

  • Prairie Fusion Arts & Entertainment (map)

ages 13 to adult • 2 hours per class

Beyond the basic knowledge of focus, exposure, and focal length, there is so much more to know about photography. What angle is best for portraits, and how do you light them? How do you get the best landscape photo? How do you photograph difficult subjects like lightening or fireworks? We’ll look at how programs like Photoshop and Lightroom can allow you to edit and optimize images. You’ll need a digital camera, either DSLR or mirrorless, that has manual settings.

with Leif Norman

Leif has shot photographs professionally for about ten years. He shoots festivals, events, dance, theatre, headshots, architecture — but no weddings. Five years ago, he founded Winnipeg’s photographic festival, FLASH, which will come back in April of 2020. He dabbles in historical photographic processes and has a collection of over 250 photographic books, which makes him so educated that he won’t stop talking and can’t tell when people are bored at parties. www.leifnorman.net
