Dong Youb Yang discovered the art of Raku during his studies in Canada in 1984 and has been researching and practicing ever since. As a result, he has developed his own particular style, somewhat different from mainstream Raku in Japan or the West. Coupled with roots in Korean technique, he suggests calling his practice Hea-Dong pottery.

Join us on Sunday, February 24th from 2-4 PM at the Wesbrook Community Centre to explore Dong Youb Yang’s philosophy in Hae-Dong while workshoping his application of the intricate process of Raku.
