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

Took a clay class for 15$ while in Sieam Reap. Was a great experience, the staff is really nice as you experiment with the first steps of making your first ever own pottery. You can keep one item you make from the 3 clay balls you get for the above amount, which they post-treat and burn and deliver to your... More

A visit to this Centre is highly recommended. The ceramics are wonderful, and done by people learning new skills which will provide an income for them and their families. The ceramics represent Cambodian art, and make wonderful gifts. Each purchase is wrapped superbly for travelling and put in lovely presentation boxes made out of palm leaves. The Centre sells all...

Kids loved the clay class workshop! Making the wheel turn, getting their hands dirty and creating a cup or jar, they had a great time. Of course there is a tourist trap here: kids get to make 3 items but only get to keep 2 of them, unless you pay more. But they turn your child's clay craft into something... More

We stopped here on the tuk tuk ride back from another attraction and to be fair we were tired, hot, and hungry. We didn't partake in any of the workshops/class on offer although from what we observed its would likely have been worth while. Its only a 10minute shop if not doing an activity, however most of the activities appeared... More

Our children 7,9 & 11 all thoroughly enjoyed this pottery class. The teaching staff were just too sweet and helpful and all our kids managed to make a delightful souvenir that was delivered to the hotel the day after beautifully packed in a basket with accompanying certificate for each child. Highly recommended!
