Service Description

14 DAYS / 15 NIGHTS / 3 MEALS PER DAY / APRONS + TOOLS / ACCOMMODATION ALL INCLUDED** All levels of experience are welcome in this intensive two week all inclusive ceramic retreat. Focus will be traditional Korean throwing techniques over a variety of fundamental forms that become the foundation for creative work. Learn the same forms that master potters learned when they first began training. The course will cover spiral wedging, proper clay preparation, throwing off the hump, production techniques, throwing thin/light, rough/textured, trimming with handmade tools (includes tool making demo), discussions on studio workflow and design philosophy. Basic forms will be covered in the first week, and depending on student progress/level of individual proficiency, instruction will be catered to continue on to more challenging and larger forms including moor jars, vases, etc. in the second week. Students that register for the two week extended course will get to glaze fire a number of pieces in our reduction gas kiln to take home and enjoy for a lifetime. Two week workshop participants will also have more dedicated one on one time with the master as well as plenty of practice time in the second week to hone particular skills they are struggling with/are interested in developing. **Please note Accommodation is provided starting the night prior to the first day of the course, and checkout is at 12pm on the last day of each course. Dinner will be provided on the night of check in. One rest day (accommodation included that night) in between the wheel throwing course and the onggi course. Please contact us to make any separate arrangements.
