Japan Woodfiring Tour

After an artist residency in Japan in 2022 I connected with John Dix, a potter whose studio is in the Tamba region. Since 1995, John has been developing Fieldwork – an educational space for potters to visit and learn about woodfiring. His philosophy of anyone can woodfire, welcomes both new ceramicists and those with decades of experience. 


The two weeks I spent there in such an enchanting space left me with a longing to return. Over the next 18 months, I planned a workshop in collaboration with John, inviting seven young Australian potters to experience their first woodfiring in the Japanese countryside. 


I have made the decision to expand the tour and continue to take groups of emerging potters over to Japan for an immersive experience into Japanese ceramics and woodfiring. 


The next tour will be taking place in March/April 2025. If you would like to join the waitlist please email me or fill out the contact form below and I will be in touch with more information.

Please join us for some drinks and nibbles, with a small talk about the tour.
