Chulsoo's pottery workshop's traditional Korean design pottery is specially designed for interior decorating and aromatherapy that uses mini candles. This pottery piece uses the shape of a traditional Korean fireplace- you can put a small candle inside the pot and add some aroma oil and water to the cauldron-shaped lid to make an aroma lamp.
While the initial process of making the pottery will be done by the participants, the next step of finalizing the pottery will be Chulsoo's job. Coloring, glazing, and baking will require at least 3 days to complete. However, tourists generally don’t stay in Seoul for that long.
This is why Chulsoo came up with the idea of passing on the handmade pottery to the next visitor. It also means that you will receive a piece of pottery made by the previous visitor as a gift after the class.
• Meet Chulsoo Kim who runs a pottery workshop in Itaewon, where people with diverse backgrounds and nationalities meet to create pottery.
• Receive a pottery gift made by the previous visitor while passing on your own pottery to the next visitor who will be attending the class.
Teacher Chulsoo, who has his very own pot design patent, will help you make a beautiful fireplace-shaped pot. He will also assist you in making the cauldron-shaped lid, which makes up the upper part of the pot.
The main concept of this program is to pass on the pottery you made with a message attached for future visitors. Through this practice, travelers visiting the workshop can become friends who are linked by pottery.
