Settled within the compound of the Renaissance Uluwatu Bali Resort, Clay Craft is in fact an international restaurant within which you’ll find their very own, in-house pottery studio!
Here on the cliffs of Uluwatu, the poolside Clay Craft restaurant is no doubt a surprising addition to the available pottery classes on the island. The studio contains 3 sophisticated pottery wheels and a kiln; here children from as young as 5 years old and adults can learn and craft their skills in pottery making. The resident potter will give you guidance from clay preparation to moulding a pot. Through the stages, kids learn how their body and hand movements bring about different shapes to the pottery creation. After 4 days, the pottery can be picked up or delivered your door, should you not have time to collect.
The best part of course is that before or after (or during if you’re not taking part yourself), you can take a seat at the stylish Clay Craft restaurant and dive into an eclectic international menu, also with local delicacies.
