Subject : International Ceramic Biennale to Launch in Gyeong
Gyeonggi International CeraMIX Biennale began in 2011 as an effort to celebrate and globally promote Korea’s excellence in ceramics. Gyeonggi International CeraMIX Biennale is scheduled to take place from September 24th to November 22nd in such major cities of Gyeonggi-do Province as Icheon, Gwangju and Yeoju under the theme of ‘Journey from Fire.’

This year, the biennale will feature a wide variety of hands-on experience programs and exhibitions. At Cerapia(Icheon World Ceramic Center), visitors will have a chance to learn about ceramics and glass crafts, and design their own ceramic plates to be hung up on a wall. At Gyeonggi Ceramic Museum in Gwangju, visitors will be able to decorate their own ceramics with the Goryeo Palman Daejanggyeong (Tripitaka Koreana) patterns. Then, at the Yeoju Ceramics World shopping center, visitors may attend exhibitions of ceramics and other traditional crafts made of wood, glass or metal.

Finally, participation in the festival requires a regular ticket or a combination ticket. Combination tickets, which can be purchased online or onsite, offer access to up to 10 hands-on experience programs as well as 12 exhibitions across the three host cities.
