IWCAT is the International Workshop of Ceramic Art in Tokoname.
We are a non-profit volunteer group of Tokoname citizens.
Tokoname is a city with a rich history of pottery and ceramics production going back 900 years.
We have been holding the International Workshop of Ceramic Art in Tokoname every summer.
Our purpose is to share our city's heritage, exchange ideas and work together to improve techniques while participating in various forms of the ceramic arts.
The program has been a success since it was initially established in 1985.
We strongly believe that the event is a valuable opportunity to develop individual skills and techniques.
Furthermore, it offers the opportunity to experience daily life with a Japanese family for the period of the workshop.
Come and join us to improve your skills, experience our culture and learn about our people !
