Tour Overview

Well-known Australian Ceramicist Marian Howell will again be leading a small group ceramic tour to Korea. We will enjoy 5 days learning from leading ceramic artists Moon Do Bang, Bae Joo-hyun and Eunmi Cho and immerse ourselves in Korean culture visiting Museums & Galleries, Icheon Ceramic Village, Gyeongbokgung Palace and historic sites plus sampling a variety of Korean food.

Following on from our 2019 sold out tour, our new itinerary will dive into the rich ceramic traditions of Korea. Who can resist falling in love with the soft, full shape of Moon Jars, a 300 year old tradition. Today, Korean ceramics has the advantage of highly skilled technical expertise as a launching pad for artists to explore their own creative freedom and speak to environmental, socio-political & economic issues.

In addition to time spent with Ceramic Artists we will enjoy the energy, food and sights of modern Seoul including the National Museum of Contemporary Art, Leeum Museum of Art , Gyeongbokgung Palace, Bukchon Hanok Village and Gwangjang Markets. We will also travel to Icheon Ceramic Village and the Namhansanseong Fortress and forest.

Our last small group tour was fully booked in a week so don’t hesitate!! Non ceramic partners welcome – we will be based in Seoul so plenty for them to explore on workshop days.
