Why Pottery Workshop is special ?

Pottery has a long tradition in Myanmar. Like some villages that produce terracotta pots in lower Myanmar, a few villages on Inlay Lake, such as Kyaut Taing, have underground kilns. Pits are dug with space in front and some steps for the potters to carry in and stack the pots, with the smoke hole at the back screened with a wind-breaking mat.


The mats are placed across one of the openings of the potters industrial-sized underground kilns in order to keep the fire going strong without going out. These walk-in kilns get tens of thousands of handmade terracotta items ready for sale to locals and visitors each year.

What to explore at Pottery Workshop?

Myanmar pottery villages provide a unique opportunity for visitors to witness traditional village life. Specifically, Kyaut Taing village is famous for its underground kilns. Pits are dug into the earth, with smoke holes and screens protecting the kiln from the wind. Steps are built at the entrance of the underground kilns, allowing potters to carry stacks of pots in and out as they work. Inle Lake offers visitors the chance to take traditional pottery making, papermaking, woodcarving, lacquer-ware and basket weaving workshops. At accommodations such as the Inle Princess Resort you can take workshops from highly skilled locals.
