Our trainees will give you a fully guided tour with explanations and demonstrations of all stages involved in turning raw clay in to a full finished, fired and glazed Khmer ceramic of beauty and utility.

“A bit of fun.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed December 29, 2012

Pros
*A bit of fun for an hour.
*Don't have to book...just turn up.
*Location is close to town.
*They deliver it to the hotel (although did have to ask for this)

Cons
*They didn't really show us how to do it...rather doing it for us.
*Didn't actually explain the process (there appeared to be no one who really spoke English, which is ok, but just meant that after we had made the pieces we didn't know what was going to happen to them - as in were they going to be glazed? what colour would they be? etc.)

“Know the people”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 28, 2012

This visit provided us with history of the people and the crafts that continue to help build the country. We were able to make several purchases to bring home so that this beautiful country stays fresh for us.

“Not really worth the visit”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed December 21, 2012

There are some potters at hand making some artifacts, but very poorly done, poor displays and poor merchandise.
Even though different it is nothing on the Artisans of Angkor.
Give it a miss

“First pottery....”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 8, 2012

I was so scared to start but eventually everything is unfurling, the staff guide during my realization and I was able to add designs on my small vase. A great place.
