Among the many hands-on cultural activities available in Korea, ceramic-making is one of the most popular for international tourists. Since long ago, Icheon city in Gyeonggi-do province has been the center of Korea’s pottery industry. It provides a one-day ceramic making program for foreigners and is only a 40-minute bus ride away from Seoul.
At the start of the program, you will hear a presentation on the culture and history of Korean pottery. You can then decorate unvarnished pieces of pottery or even try making your own on the potter’s wheel. When you finish your pottery, you can take it home with you or arrange to have it sent by airmail.
