Tour Details

At your chosen tour time, your driver will arrive at your hotel so that you can hop aboard a local Tuk Tuk for the approximately 3 minute drive from the center of town. Siem Reap has been a center of traditional ceramics in Cambodia for centuries, due to its proximity to obtainable pottery making materials.

Have an expert explain the steps of the ceramics process and demonstrate the skills for you. Then get behind the pottery wheel to shape your own masterpiece under an expert eye and guidance. Have a go at spinning the pottery wheel to mold pieces from local Cambodian clay and add some Kbach (Cambodian ornament) to your piece(s). Use the various tools and equipment in the workshop with the help of your instructor to create your own Cambodian pottery – a piece of artwork to display proudly to your friends and family back home.

When your masterpiece is done, your driver will take you back to your hotel. During the evening, the piece(s) will be fired in a kiln to become functional. The next day the piece(s) will be delivered to your hotel (around 5:00pm) as a unique souvenir of your experience. Your guide will ensure that your piece is safely packed for you with a friendly "Cambodian potter diploma." If you prefer to have your pieces shipped to your home address, this can also be arranged although the service is at your own expense.

A gallery is attached to the workshop, so head inside to browse the pottery on display, admiring the intricate design and glazes of Khmer Ceramics.
