Join a fun pottery making workshop in Penang, where you can choose to create your favourite's all up to your creativity!

The craft of making ceramic pottery is one of the world's oldest human inventions. Today it has a cultural and functional presence in almost every country. Our local expert discovered the intrinsic beauty of pottery making while studying tea art in Taiwan and Japan, and decided to share this with eager students.

Open to local and international craft enthusiasts of all skill levels, this workshop is perfect if you would like to bring home a crafty skill and souvenir. Located close to the botanical garden of Penang, our hands-on classes are conducted by Professor Okamoto and Professor Nakono, retired Japanese volunteers who love to share the art of making ceramic pottery. You can choose to make a ceramic gift of your choice, from tea cups to plates, bowls and creative centrepieces.
