The Pottery Workshop
The Pottery Workshop (PWS) is a ceramic art education and communication center established in Hong Kong in 1985. Since it's beginning, four new locations have been created in Shanghai, Jingdezhen, Beijing and most recently Dali. Each Pottery Workshop location is unique. The Hong Kong location specializes in classes for adults and children. Shanghai also offers lessons, as well as produces much of our ceramic ware. Jingdezhen is our biggest location, and invites artists from all over the world to its residency.
Ceramicist Caroline Cheng who is the director of The Pottery Shop, gives a talk about the next generation of artisans from Jingdezhen, China’s 1000-year-old porcelain capital famed for traditional blue and white ceramics. Caroline’s work is part of the British Museum’s collection and will be on display in November 2017.
