Portugal / 7 Day Onggi Masterclass

  • Starts Feb 14, 2024
  • 4,960 US dollars

7 DAYS / 7 NIGHTS / 3 MEALS PER DAY / LOCAL CLAY / ACCOMMODATION ALL INCLUDED* Dates: February 15 - 22, 2024 Learn the rare art of the Onggi technique, a method unique in the world for coil building large pots and forms. Traditionally born out of necessity in Korea, Onggi pots were and still are used today for food fermentation and storage. A quintessential example of how form follows function, both the forms and building techniques are a living art in and of themselves. You will be given your own set of wooden tools to use during the course**, and taught how to make coils, flatten the base of the pot, and coil the clay using the “Taryeom” method. Later you will learn how to paddle the form and shape it, giving you a newfound sense of volume and proportion on a large scale. There are only a handful of Onggi masters left in Korea, and even fewer opportunities to learn from one first hand. *Please note: -Check in between 3pm - 5pm on Feb 14 (plan to arrive at Tres Marias at this time) -Dinner will be provided together with the other students on Feb 14 evening. -We begin Feb 15 with breakfast at Tres Marias and you will walk to Clay Kitchen by 9am - Instruction begins each day at 9:30am, lunch will be provided around 1pm followed by a short break and again practice and instruction until evening from 2:30pm until 5:30pm Dinner will be provided each night. Our last dinner together will be on the evening of Feb 21 -Checkout is at 12noon on Feb 22. (Plan to leave Tres Marias accommodation by this time). - If you have taken a class with us before, we will cater the program slightly different to keep the learning fresh. Please indicate any dietary restrictions during the registration process. If you are a local/vanlife /tent camping enthusiast, contact us to make separate accommodation arrangements. ** Onggi tools will be provided for you to use during the workshop as part of the course fees. During the course many students choose to purchase their own set from us, which are typically available from our studio in Korea. Since this workshop is outside of our studio, if you would like to purchase a set, please indicate this on the registration page. Please note, we will only bring extra sets for sale for students that purchase the tools during registration. We look forward to welcoming you!
