There's something quite therapeutic about getting your hands dirty in clay, moulding and shaping the piece of lump into a work of art or expressing yourself through the different techniques. And at the end of it all, you bring home a ceramic crockware you can call your own. So, if you want to craft your unique ceramic piece, here are eight pottery classes and studios in Singapore to dip your hands into.

Am I Addicted


You might have seen the open-concept studio as you walk down the spiral slope from the sixth floor. Am I Addicted is the largest Korean pottery studio in Orchard Road, where you can express yourself with clay.

From wheel throwing to handbuilding and pottery painting workshops, the studio also runs beginner classes for those who want to dive into techniques.
