  • My husband and I were picked up from our hotel at 0945 by tuk tuk and taken to our pottery class which started at 1000. The class started with a brief introduction and a demonstration of how to make a bowl - nine steps in total. After this we were given a very experienced helper who sat opposite us and helped us make five different items ranging from cups, bowls, plates and vases. It sounds daunting put as you are given a person to help then the task is so much easier. The things you forget to do like putting water on your clay or not turning the wheel quick enough are always remedied for you. You get to make five items and you get to keep one as part of the cost for doing it and if you want to keep any more they cost 5 each which is a bargain. This whole experience is made more extraordinary as all the helpers are deaf which means they cannot speak to you and instead use their expertise to assist you in the turning of your clay. We had never touched clay never mind turned it on a potters wheel, this is a great thing to do and when you see a lump of clay turned into something you do get a great sense of achievement. This pottery class is a must if you are visiting Siem Reap, the people involved are lovely and you will have a great time.

  • One must have such experience in the life

  • Good late afternoon outing. Fun for the family. Get to take 3-4 tries to make something worth firing and glazing. If you are hopeless like me, they step in and guide you so you having something that resembles a cup or bowl or plate. Pick up next day.

  • AMAZING EXPERIENCE! If you get the chance, please go!

  • Highly recommended!

  • Good fun for the whole family. My daughter still talks about it months later as one of the favorite things she has done. It is a little hard to communicate with the instructors, but we made it work.

  • This was a great experience! It is part of Cambodia's life and it was great to be able to learn. Sadly I couldn't take my piece home with me as I left next day early in the morning. It is an must have experience!

  • It was a nice experience for first time behind the pottery wheels. It was interesting to know that this place used 'unable to speak' labour to train us. They were experts, but they couldn't speak, and only used body languages. They helped us almost fully to make the potteries, which made us only have little time chance to do it ourselves. At end we could engrave our art on the pieces we liked and have them burn and deliver to our hotel next day. The service was good, but we were a bit disappointed that 1 of our pieces were not as how it was. It was cut off at bottom and there was a note saying sorry. They gave us another nice cup to make up to us. We found it pity for that piece, since that was a piece we chose for each other, because we were celebrating our 1000th days together in Cambodia. The packaging of delivery were all nice and good. We transported safely back to Hong Kong and I am using their gifted mug now.

  • This class was really great! It was taught by deaf potters. And part of the proceeds from this class goes towards helping the deaf school. My teacher was helpful and kind. You make 5 different pieces and you choose 1 to take home. You can take additional pieces for 5 dollars a piece. This class was a lot of fun.

  • I loved that the pottery place was run by people with hearing disabilities. My teacher wasn and #39;t very good at teaching though. My friend and #39;s teacher was amazing though, very patient. I wish they had told us to press harder into the clay when decorating. Or that the pieces shrink when baked.
