Seven Days in Chilliwack – May 28 to June 3

A list of entertaining events in Chilliwack for May 28 to June 3.

Vijaya Morrison (with gloves) of Rainforest Pottery transfers a fiery hot ceramic pot into a reduction container filled with wood chips and paper shreds during Raku in the Valley at Thompson Park in the Chilliwack River Valley on Saturday. The reduction stage extracts oxygen from the pot to create different effects on its glazed finish. More than 60 people took part in the workshop where they glazed and fired pre-made pots.
