I understand that the pottery session is only 1.5 hours. However I wished we were taught more techniques rather than jumping right into it. I felt rushed by my instructor in the beginning. She would tell me exactly what to do and if I didn't do it right, she did it for me. I learned watching her. But wished there... More

My son and I both enjoyed the pottery experience, although the quality of the instruction was quite poor. As my 'tutor' said, it is just meant to be fun. I would have be quite happy though apart from the fact that when my son's artwork was delivered the next day, it had broken. It was a huge disappointment for my... More

Pottery making is hard work but I did enjoy it. Had an one on one instructor who went through techniques with me. The only criticism is that I wanted to create my own looking creation but they manipulated the clay to look like one of there prototype pieces. Nice to do something different and learn something new.

I already visited the centre two year ago but I didn't have the chance to do a class. I finally did my pottery class yesterday and my wife tries the painting activity with the kid. Both activities was great! They just deliver our pieces fired to our hotel and we receive a 3 Angkorian potter certificate. My wife will return... More

My idea to do this. They came picked us up from the hotel. My partner mostly enjoyed this. However, I was mostly waiting for it to be over. This must be the only thing in Siem Reap I felt was quite a bit of a rip off. It was my first time doing anything with pottery. I felt extremely rushed... More

Our three year old took a pottery class and got to make a small bowl on the wheel and a formed clay elephant. The teacher was very patient and interactive with him. They fired the pieces in the kiln and delivered the finished products to our hotel the next day. It was a truly wonderful cultural experience for our son.

We want to to the workshop after we visited the store, as we realised they offer free tuk tuk rides there. They have a huge range of very good quality ceramics, from mugs to plates and jugs. I bought 4 mugs and a container, came securely packaged in bubble wrap and in a bamboo box. They also offer pottery lessons... More

We had a free day and decided to try our luck with this, we gave them a call and 2 hours later we were being picked up at a cafe nearby. It's nice that they include a pick-up and drop-off. Panha was our host and ceramic teacher, he was the best! It was a true pleasure meeting him on our... More
