Pottery making in Siem Reap, Cambodia
If your mini-me is ready to make the jump from mud pies to something a bit more advanced, it’s time to take the pottery wheel for a spin. Held just down the road from one of the world’s great masterpieces – Angkor Wat – Siem Reap’s ceramics workshops help pint-sized potters create their very own Angkorian bowl, complete with Khmer flower carvings. You’ll get the clay out from their fingernails eventually, but mucky memories – and an impressive ‘potter’s diploma’ – will last forever.
Parental pointer: The workshops are open to kids aged three and up. Be sure not to leave it until your last day in Cambodia: bowls must be glazed and fired overnight.
