Welcome to Jingdezhen

The Pottery Workshop Jingdezhen invites groups of all types
sizes for education and fun. Experiential learning is the
mission of The Education Center. We've hosted small
and big
groups from all walks of life, including students,
enthusiasts, and master craftspeople. Some
groups work
in our studios learning traditional
Chinese ceramics techniques,
while other groups tour the
ceramics areas and countryside. We
can work with you to
produce a custom plan specific to the needs
of your group.
The Pottery Workshop will help you arrange custom-tailored
classes in traditional Chinese ceramics techniques with local
Qinghua Painting
Learn about the long history of blue & white ceramics,
specialized tools for application, how to prepare qinghua
for painting, and various painting techniques. Students
practice on greenware tiles and plates, which can later
be fired and taken home.
On Glaze Painting
Various materials (e.g. xincai, fencai) and techniques are
shown. Students can select already fired whiteware (plates,
bowls, vases, etc.) to paint on, which can later be fired
and taken home.
Introduction to various carving techniques. Students can
carve their own creations in already made greenware
(plates, bowls, vases, etc.). Work can be glazed and
fired to be taken home.
Throwing & Trimming
A local potter will show you the intricacies of throwing and
trimming Jingdezhen porcelain.
All the sculptures here in the Sculpture Factory come from
molds. A local plaster mold maker will show you the basics,
including introduction to plaster types, plaster mixing,
single and multi-part molds.
Slip Casting & Press Molding
Much of the work created in the Sculpture Factory is either
slip cast or press molded. Local masters will show you their
special techniques for working small and big.
