This is a very intensive course that introduces Japanese pottery making techniques and is suitable for people who want to learn about the pottery production process during a short trip in Japan. We teach Japanese techniques for wheel throwing, hand-building, glazing, and firing.
Students are also exposed to a variety of tools and materials.
Students are not restricted to one class per day – please feel free to take multiple classes in a day.
If you are traveling in Japan for a relatively short time, we recommend joining our pottery course at the beginning of your trip to Japan as it takes c. 3 or 4 weeks to complete a piece. For those who are very pressed for time, we offer express firing services so the process can be completed within 7 days – shipping is also available, but with additional charges.
The duration of the short term course is not fixed and can be extended according to your availability. We open everyday from 10am to 8pm. Each class runs for two hours and starts at either 10am, 1:30pm, 4pm, or 6pm.
