LOOK: For P300, You Can Try Your Hands at Pottery in this Workshop in Pampanga
Invest in memorable experiences – it’s never too late to try something new!

It’s never too late to start your New Year resolutions, especially if you plan on picking up a new hobby. Pottery might be for you if you’re on the hunt for a relaxing but fun activity and down to get your hands dirty. While there are plenty of pottery studios in the metro already, rates can get expensive. Fortunately, Pampanga Pottery offers various pottery packages starting at P300:
While a trip to Pampanga will usually bring you to restaurants and cafes for a fun food trip, a day tour to Pottery Pampanga in the municipality of Sto. Tomas offers something exciting for both children and adults. In fact, Sto. Tomas is Pampanga’s pottery capital, so you’ll also find plenty of stores and workshops along the way. From plates to colorful planters for your plant babies, you’ll find them here.
What sets Pottery Pampanga apart from other manufacturing businesses around town is its hands-on experience for visitors. Other than shopping for planters, tourists can also try their hands at pottery starting at P300. This is inclusive of a wet throwing experience with a lecturer to guide you.
During the workshop, you’ll be given a one-kilogram pot of clay and pottery tools. The guided wheel-throwing class only lasts for 10-15 minutes and the rest of your time will be spent on wet designing. This is the perfect package for first-timers!
Take note that curing takes two weeks, so plan your next trip ahead.
More activities for friends and family
Aside from the wet-throwing pottery experience, visitors can also try other relaxing activities around the workshop. If you’re not down to get your hands dirty, you can opt for a pottery painting experience for P250. There’s also an in-house cafe here, so you can have refreshing cold drinks while painting your clay pots in different colors and quirky designs.
Pottery Pampanga also houses an agritourism park where you can try your hands at fishing, rabbit feeding, and learning about fruit trees and native trees. You can avail of these activities separately or book them as a package.
Here’s a list of their packages and activities:
