Beyond training on form and technique, residents will be guided through the entire process of making a piece, from fundamentals of clay selection, traditional buncheong surface treatment to firing. Residents will also have the rare opportunity to travel south to Oegosan Onggi Village in Ulsan and meet Kwak Kyungtae's master, a National Living Treasure. *Please note: - Check in between 3pm - 5pm on Nov 27 (plan to arrive at Ye's Park at this time) - Toroo Studio's comfortable and fitted kitchen will be at your disposal during the Residency, you can shop for groceries at the local supermarket and prepare your breakfast and dinner, or eat out in the village at your own convenience. - We begin on Nov 28 with tea or coffee and a chat at 8am and a tour of the Toroo Studio. - Instruction begins each day around 9:30am, giving residents opportunities for one-on-one or small group learning.
