We took our two boys (5 and 8) to do a pottery class yesterday. The staff were wonderful and especially patient with our 5y/o who wanted to make a dragon rather than a pot. After an hour they had succeeded in replicating his school's toy dragon, Rex, who is on tour with us. The items were delivered the next day to our hotel and to my son's delight, there was a second dragon included. The first had lost his tail in the kiln, so the staff made another more robust one.
As others have mentioned, the ceramics for sale are excellent and no pressure to buy which was a nice change after the experience of the old markets.
