If you visit the Angkor National Museum you will see many fine examples of early pottery on display. Khmer Ceramics will teach you how to throw your own Angkorian bowl on the potter’s wheel.
They will also show you the painting and carving techniques and you get to take your favourite (from the 5 you make) home with you. They will fire it for you for pickup the next day.
Painting and Pottery classes cost just $20 and is a great family activity. They also offer free pick-up and drop-off.
