Where to learn how to make Yixing Teapot?

by LilPotato » Mar 21st 22 5:45 am

Hello I would like to know where I can learn the process of making Yixing Teapot.

My whole family loves tea and so do I. I would love to go to China to learn from an expert but I can't because of COVID and family reasons. The only things I found online are videos but those videos are edited and do not have detailed explanations.

Is there a book that has a detailed explanation from the start to finish? Is this knowledge not allowed outside of China?

Check out slab-build pottery and see what you can find. Knowledge is money, no one will describe everything in detail for free... best is if you can find a pottery class, even if it is another method it will still be useful to learn.
