I've just been given some information on a Korean workshop
with Korean potter Kim Yong Moon, that takes place this
summer from July 1 to July 11, and said I'd pass it on to
the list. I know that some list members attended a
similar workshop last year, and maybe they'll have commments.
I have no information other than what is noted below:

Macsabal International Woodfire Festival 2000

July 1 Opening Ceremonies, concert
July 2-4 Workshop begins
July 5 Visits to Museums & Galleries
July 6 More workshop
July 7 Workshop, slides
July 8 Wood firing, (Osan)
July 9 Workshop & slides
July 10 Village & province tour
July 11 Unload kiln, exchange of works, close of workshop

Workshop includes pottery making, slides shows, salt
firing, onggi pot throwing.

Organizers are Yongin city, Osan city, Ministry of Culture,
Kyonggi Cultural Foundation, MBC TV, and others.

The FEE, which includes food, lodging, materials and
admission fees to museum, etc) is: $200/American. Air
fares are the responsibility of the participant.

Perhaps a previous attendee or two could comment on the
arrangements. It is remarkably inexpensive, it seems to me.
