Fun hands on pottery class! A great introduction to ceramics and using a simple potters wheel. Very well set up studio, with lots of kick-wheels in a garden setting. Staff demonstrate first, then help you, until you are able to throw a pot successfully yourself. You then choose one to be fired and glaze after de orating it with traditional Khmer patterns.
Class price includes transfers to/from hotel, and they delivered my pots and purchases at no e tra cost.
Ceramics gallery inside with beautiful contemporary and traditional pieces. Not cheap, but quality work at fair prices. Shipping avail. Delightful staff.

Had a lovely afternoon making pottery with the lovely teachers. they are so calm and patient and always happy to help. I needed more than most :) But my pieces ended up looking fantastic and I look forward to using them.

I would definitely recommend this activity as something different to do in Siem Reap, plus you come away with a souvenir you made yourself!!

I have done the pottery class at Khmer Ceramics 3 times - twice with kids and once with friends. Every time was a delight. The staff are friendly and patient, and at the end of the class you are sure to have a piece that you are proud of to take home! My whole family really enjoyed it.

While I highly recommend making pottery with the Deaf and Hard of Hearing folks I feel I need to warn participants NOT to give their contact information to them. My husband and I love meeting people from around he world and as a hearing signer was thrilled to be able to speak to instructors despite our country's language barriers. It was so much fun! The instructors were extremely talented, made the class so much entertaining and we have come away with lovely souvenirs! (FYI the price of the class and price for the piece(s) you can purchase afterward are VERY reasonable!) We thought how fun it would be to have made new friends to communicate with. My husband tipped them well because of the wonderful time we had, but it wasn't long after I had given them my contact info that texts along with photos came depicting poverty and need for money came. It was so disappointing and soured my experience. So as a friendly warning save yourself the heartache of feeling as though you're being scammed, enjoy the wonderful class with these talented young men but don't give them your contact information.

We have visited Khmer Ceramics 3 years in a row and the kids always enjoy turning out their own bowls, cups and vases. We now have a great collection. The ceramics for sale are beautiful and they are wrapped expertly for you when you purchase them. The staff are very patient when teaching and directing the kids on the pottery wheel and the finished products are fired and delivered to your hotel.

분위기 좋은 뒷골목에 늘어선 아기자기한 상점 중 하나.
현지에서 생산한 도자기와 악세서리 등을 판매하고 있고,
입구와 내부가 너무 예뻐서 그 앞을 지나치는 사람들은 한번쯤 들어가보게 되는 곳이다.
그러나 제품과 브랜드 이미지에 비해 직원은 최악이었다.
귀걸이와 선물용 스카프를 구매했는데, 숙소에 와서 보니 스카프의 품질이 엉망이었다.
(마감이 안되어 있어서 올이 다 풀린다.)
다음날 돌아가서 환불을 요구했으나, 영수증을 가져가지 않아서 거부당했다.
그러나 영수증이 없어도 크레디트 카드 사용 내역이 있고,
무엇보다 그 제품은 오직 그곳에서만 판매하는 것으로 패키지와 라벨도 그대로 있었다.
이것을 아무리 설명해도 직원은 "no reciept, no refund"라고만 말할 뿐이었고,
게다가 "How do I trust you haven't used it?"이라는 모욕적인 말을 했다.
"I just bought this yesterday from you and you can see it's not used or damaged."
라고 대답하자,
그 직원은 "Ok you can change it for another one, but no refund." 라고 말했다.

내가 물건을 사용했을지도 모른다고?! 그런데 교환은 가능하다고???
오만하고 불친절한 표정과 말투에 기분이 상해서 그냥 나올 수밖에 없었고,
그 스카프는 그냥 버렸다.

아직도 그 남자 직원이 거기서 일하고 있는지 모르겠지만
브랜드 이미지에 매우 좋지 않다고 생각한다. 다신 가고 싶지 않다.

Clay, pottery wheels and shy artisans welcome you encouraging expression. A broad explanation is given on what to do before you are introduced to your artisan, who are all deaf and mute.

They walk you through each step with great patience and are very encouraging. You are able to make 5 pieces of which one is selected to be fired up, an additional usd5 is charged for any additional pieces.

After shaping your pieces - there is an option to carve, takes 24 hours for the fire up. Definitely a great experience - getting lost in expression and time. The last class is at 4pm, ring to make a booking (transport provided or they give you a refund for your tuk tuk).

There is a shop with pieces made by the artisans - not just pottery, includes trinkets, worth checking out.

My husband and 2 young daughters loved the pottery class. The teachers were very kind to our children, assisting them greatly and pedalling the wheel for them. We made some great pots and had a lot of fun. The shop also sells some lovely products which we purchased. Based on previous reviews I had expected our pots to be delivered to our hotel, but they no longer do that. It wasn't a big deal to collect them the next day. I would recommend.

The kids and I really enjoyed this. In fact my youngest says it was one of the highlights of our trip. Not cheap at $20 each plus another $5 if you want any extra pieces fired. You get to make 5 pieces, and choose one to have fired. You have a demonstration of how to throw a pot using the wheel, then a personal teacher sitting opposite you, intervening when necessary. We had 7 pieces fired. They were delivered the following evening to our hotel. Unfortunately one piece belonged to another family and one of ours was missing. The centre did everything they could to rectify this, it turned out my sons pot (in a frog shape) had broken, so they offered him to make another that same evening. In fact when we arrived they had already replicated it so my son just needed to add his final touches. It was delivered just before we checked out the following day, red hot from the kiln! Fab service.
