ONGGI WORKSHOP with KWAK KYUNG TAE

1,200.00

4 day Onggi Workshop with Kwak Kyung Tae

Students will learn the ancient technique of large pot making known as Onggi, used traditionally for fermentation and storage in Korea. The technique is unique in the world in its efficiency of movement and the speed at which substantially large pots can be produced.

The Onggi method will be separated into various techniques:

  1. Stretching Coils (Taryeom)

  2. Making the base

  3. The Coiling method (Taryeom-jil)

  4. Paddling (Sure-jil)

  5. Shaping with a double ribs (Geungae-jil)

All 5 techniques will be studied in depth and combined to form a jar on the kick wheel in the traditional style. This will be an excellent opportunity for those wishing to make larger work or for those who handbuild already to learn a faster way of working.

There are only a handful of Onggi masters left in Korea and fewer still willing to teach their methods in a workshop style. A truly once in a lifetime opportunity. Each participant will receive their own set of Onggi tools. A lunch will be provided each day. Spaces are limited to allow for plenty of one-on-one training. Participants will make a traditional Onggi jar during the workshop but more importantly will be able to leave with confidence to continue practicing this method in their own studio or home.

Dates: July 6th, 7th, 8th & 9th (Sat- Tues)

PLEASE NOTE: Minimum numbers are required for this workshop. A full refund of workshop cost will be issued if minimum numbers are not met.
