Our family of four arrived from Phnom Penh earlier that day and the torrential afternoon rains came. Working the pottery wheel under the open canopy was the perfect way to let the rains pass and the instructors were genuinely fun and our teen girls had a marvelous time interacting with the local staff. We laughed so hard as our instructor... More

This was a great place to sit down and paint my pottery while also getting to talk with the friendly staff. I ended up spending a few hours there (though I only planned for one) because I was having such a great time. I bought a few keepsakes but being able to make and paint your own pottery makes such...

We enjoyed the experience however we were disappointed because we were rushed through while making our pots (Despite no one else being there) because the tutors wanted to go to lunch early. Our pots arrived a day late and were cracked and glued back together. Although we understand the heating process is not always reliable. We were not spoken to... More

The experience of pottery on the wheel itself was wonderful - we were excited about this as it is something we both wanted to try. Unfortunately the staff were too busy chit chatting and appeared uninterested in teaching the "class". They did not ask us what we wanted to make and simply started making whatever they felt like and expected... More

I didn't want to head to the temples on the last day of Khmer New year (as they are typically packed with locals during that time of year), so I decided try a pottery class in the morning. The center was pretty desserted. I went inside the shop to query about rates for a ceramics class. They range from USD15... More

A really good course to improve your pottery skills. I would recommend allowing a lot more time then the course recommends. For example our 1.5hr course was more like 2.5hrs and we could have continued for longer. I have done some pottery classes before so I found the workshop a really great way to improve my skills. I think if... More

I took my 8, 10 and 13 year old to take the clay class while my husband enjoyed a much needed visit to the spa in our hotel. It was a perfect outing for us as we all were able to learn how to use the potter wheel and mold some bowls and vases! The staff was really great as... More

I only went to the small shop nestled in one of the alleys of Pub Street area, and I wished I could have had much more space in my backpack, there are many pieces of pottery, scarves, nicely lacquered wooden statues and more. Prices are reasonable, especially for big items. Would return and buy with bigger bag.
