  • Itinerary

    Travel to Icheon to try your hands to make ceramic pieces like cups, jars, pendants, or vases under careful guidance of master(Options for extra pay).Yeoju has long been the cradle of Korea셲 high quality porcelain. There is a well established workshop where you can test your own pottery-making skills. The clay is ready at your turn table.

    Pottery is made by forming a clay body into objects of a required shape and heating them to high temperatures in a kiln to induce reactions that lead to permanent changes, including increasing their strength and hardening and setting their shape. Prior to some shaping processes, air trapped within the clay body needs to be removed by wedging. Wedging can also help to ensure even moisture content throughout the body. Once a clay body has been de-aired or wedged, it is shaped by a variety of techniques. After shaping it is dried before firing. The potter셲 most basic tools include the potter셲 wheel and turntable, shaping tools (paddles, anvils, ribs), rolling tools (roulettes, slab rollers, rolling pins), cutting/piercing tools (knives, fluting tools, wires) and finishing tools (burnishing stones, rasps, chamois).
