Tour Highlights

Icheon Ceramic Village, which is located an hour away from Seoul, is the major place for white pocelain of the Joseon Dynasty that is continuing the legacy of brilliant Korean ceramic culture. To see the essence of traditional Korean celadon such as aristocratic Goryeo celadon, simple and graceful white porcelain of the Joseon Dynasty, this is the place you should visit.
Icheon Ilwon became the center for traditional Korean pottery from the Joseon Dynasty because of its location close to the base materials and fuel like the neighbor city of Gwangju. Icheon has invested 7 hundred million won in working expenses in the village to build an exhibition room, restaurant, parking lots for convenience in 1988, and it was spotlighted as a one day tour course during the 1988 Olympic games.
You will especially experience the unique subtle green color in the ceramics and its pure beauty through the artworks of Mr. Ji who is an intangible property for white porcelain pottery. Also Heagang Ceramic Museum is the only ceramic art gallery where many ceramic lovers visit to meet the late Mr. Go’s works of celadon.


Pottery factories are concentrated in Saeumdong and Sindunmyeon of Icheon-si where you can be guided through the production process of ceramics and purchase some for yourself. After learning about the production process in a 20 minutes tour and explanation, you will get the chance to practice making pottery. You will draw or write words with a brush on a biscuit firing. A reservation is needed for each turntable.

What You Can Expect

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

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 potter's most basic tools include the potter's 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).
