Your artwork is fired in a kiln overnight and ready for pickup the following day. Bonus: Enjoy round-trip hotel transport to the studio by tuk-tuk!
Enjoy making a Cambodian bowl using a Khmer pottery wheel and carving tools at a ceramics studio in Siem Reap. At your selected time, meet your driver at your hotel lobby and hop aboard a tuk-tuk for the quick drive from the city center to the workshop.
On arrival, meet your instructor — a professional Cambodian artist — who explains the history of ceramic-making and demonstrates each step in the process. During your approximate 2-hour class, you’ll get behind the pottery wheel to shape your own Angkorian bowl using local clay. Afterward, your instructor helps you to use various tools to add kbach (ornamentation) to your piece.
At the end of your session set your masterpiece aside to be fired in the kiln overnight, and enjoy the tuk-tuk ride back to your hotel. Your piece will be ready for pickup the following day.
If you prefer to have your pieces shipped home, it can be arranged at your own expense.
