3 Day Course: Fermentation – Crock & Kimchi Making - Camden Art Centre

Learn how to hand build a fermenting crock and make your own ferments in this 3 day course.

Over this 3 day course led by Lyson Marchessault, you will learn how to build a fermenting crock, which will be able to hold any kind of ferment/pickles. You will learn how to hand-build a container with a mote, to create a water-sealed piece with a lid. Participants will have the opportunity to build their piece, glaze it and finally participate in a kimchi-making tutorial in the final session.

This course will encompass the entire process, from learning how to hand build a crock; making your own fermentation inside the crock; and finally discussing how pickling and fermentation can help develop a balanced diet and gut health.
