Festival Tips

Festival tips

"Rakuvaria-Live XL" is a one of a kind festival, because:

  • You can see all participants working withtheir technique. There will be dozens of different kilns burning.
  • As a visitor you even can follow brief workshops during the festival. Sign up in advance is necessary!
  • During the festival, visitors can eat dinner and breakfast with all participants and they can stay over night on our temporary campsite.

- We are easily accessible by train! Get off at Station Horst / Sevenum to railroad Eindhoven-Venlo, a 700 meters walk and you're at the festival!
- Many reasons to make a multi-day stay
- Just 1 km away is a big Jumbo supermarket that’s open every day, handy for camp guests!

Your partner has less interest in ceramics? Some tips:

  • From our temporary campsite you walk along a meandering creek in a very beautiful nature area " ’t Ham."
    In this picture you see across the creek, the meadow, where the temporary camp site will be.
    Sometimes you can see here the king fisher....and the beavers are very active! 

  

  • On 1 km distance there is a beautiful hilly mountain bike trail in a forest called "Reulsberg"

  

  • On 300 meters distance.... From station Horst/Sevenum starts a fast bicycle path, which covers a distance of over 20 kilometres to station Venlo.
    More information about this unique cycle path: www.greenportbikeway.nl

The useful space in the kiln is Ø 7 cm and 4 cm high.

Since the ovens are commonly used in glass fusing, we've added something to the article, i.e. an extra sturdy base made of insulating brick.

The ovens are ideal for small jewelry making and for example to make glaze-samples: www.microwave-hotpot.com
