A fun experience and activity to do in Hanoi as a way to get away from the bustling city! Our tour guide was really helpful and friendly in his guide. We visited a lot of factories and stores that had different pottery specialities such as being handmade, hand painted or specialising in producing specific goods. I also had the chance to buy a ceramic good from one of the stores. We had a choice betweeb Banh Cuon or Bun Cha for lunch and we chose the former. We appreciate the variety they provide, as well as the service of pick up and drop off. We also got the opportunity to make our own pottery using a wheel and we made 6 in total between 2 people. They provide shipping of our goods once they have finished glazing and baking them. We had a lot of fun seeing the ancient village and the village overall. The history was explained really well and the tour guide was very helpful!

Signed up for the morning class. It was conducted by a lady, she is EXTREMELY patient and fun to work with. It was my 1st time trying such workshop. I was struggling, yet the lady instructor was so so so calm and patient with me (thank you so much 😭)

The class went on for 2.5 - 3 hours, managed to make 5 pieces. Brought home 2 as a keepsake.

This tour was awesome. Loved the pottery class then went out to Bat Trang village. Tony was fabulous and took us to his factory there along with other fantastic places. It was a great day out and I would definitely recommend this tour.

Is a good experience, the teacher & assistant teacher both are v helpful & patience. For 1 1/2 hrs, u can do as many as you like. The only thing is to pay extra $ to bring home of your creation. 🤣.

My husband and I had a great morning taking a wheel-throwing class. The instructor was patient and there were three other people, so 5 in the experience total. The instructor centered the clay for the participants on the wheel and then guided them along the process of creating a piece; opening the clay, pulling the clay up, and shaping the clay. We threw a few pieces until we were ready to stop and choose one to be fired and glazed. For a small extra cost, you can take home more than one of your pieces.

A few days later we were able to pick up our final pieces! I am impressed by how quickly they were glazed and fired. Tony, who works at the shop, is friendly and knowledgable and I loved learning a little about the village of Bat Trang and that my husband and I were able to return home with actual finished ceramic pieces from our pottery class experience. Highly recommended if you want to get clay on your hands or try wheel throwing. Beautiful glaze selection, too!

I am also glad I had the insight to do this early on our Hanoi adventure, as the pieces we made still took a few days to finish on Authentic Bat Trang's end with the firing and glazing. Thank you for a unique experience!

I had a wonderful time at this workshop in the Old Quarter and the ceramic shop was unique. The owner, who grew up in Bac Trang Pottery Village, hosted the workshop. Initially, we gathered at the ceramics store and were led around the corner to a secret alley where the ceramics studio was located. The host demonstrated how to make a cup, vase, bowl, and plate within seconds, and it was like magic! We all had our own motorized turntables, and the host went around helping each of us create our pieces. We had 4-5 hours to make as many pieces as we wanted, and later we could choose which ones to fire/glaze and take home. The workshop includes one free ceramic, and any others are about $5 USD per piece extra. However, you need to stay in Hanoi for a few days for them to fire and glaze your pieces. If you don't have plans to stay in Hanoi, you can also choose pieces in the shop to bring home or have them shipped to you. After a long trip in the North, I picked up my pieces weeks later, and they came out beautifully with a lovely stamp at the bottom marking the shop and memory. This is an authentic experience that you should try while in Hanoi, especially on a rainy day.

A very enjoyable experience. The basics of Bat Trang pottery were taught, and students were given time (and a lot of practice) to exercise creativity to create pottery.

The instructor communicates well, and is patient to teach, as many of the students are doing it for the first time. At the end of the session most students are able to take away a piece of their creation.
