What To Expect

Get ready to unleash your inner artist and get down and dirty at an immersive pottery workshop! A perfect bonding activity for family members and friends, this approximately 2-hour long session will not only challenge you to create pieces of art from mere lumps of clay, but will also introduce you to the traditional process of pottery and firing, right at the oldest surviving brick-built kilns in Singapore. Unlike other kilns powered by gas or electric, Dragon Kiln remains true to its roots, using wood to fire their kilns to produce unique and characteristic pieces. Throughout the workshop, experiences instructors will teach you tips and tricks to expertly coil, pinch, roll, and shape your clay by hand until you're satisfied with your masterpiece. If you're up for a challenge, test your skills at the pottery wheel, a more advanced yet easily learnable technique that doesn't require any prior experience! After some finishing touches, you'll turn over your creation for the next steps - glazing and firing - which requires a 3-4 week wait before you can finally take home your finished product. Experiencing the age-old and almost obsolete tradition of kilning by firewood may be a long process, but it's definitely one that's worth the wait!

  • EILIN 16 Jun 2018
    We went on a full house day so it felt busy but still lots of fun. The instructors were very nice and helpful. Don’t expect to be handheld closely or create a perfect piece, you’ll have to enjoy the process of creating, exploring and relaxing on your own to get the most out of it. We went with three young kids so we adults did much of the work but it was a really good bonding activity. For the potters wheel experience, other than playing with clay on your own, the instructor will handhold you to make something standard so don’t worry if you mess up at the wheel by yourself! The whole place is a very nice bonus - great greenery (love the hidden pond) and wooded/bamboo architecture that house an amazing collection. it’s nothing like anywhere else in Singapore.

    It was a wonderful experience for my children and me. My children had so much fun making their own cups for the very first time! Quite a therapeutic + bonding session for us too. The instructors are also friendly and approachable. We'll definitely make time to return for another round when possible!
