Phạm Phán, Thanh Hà, Hội An
Thanh Ha pottery village has formed and developed for 500 years and together with the development of Hoi An trading port. The products made by the villagers mainly serve the daily lives of the native people in domestic markets. The pottery products include bowls, jars, pots, animal shapes, in multi-forms and colors, and they are lighter than the same products in other places. Also some products such as bricks, yin-yang tiles… were supplied to construct houses, temples, bridges… and formed a bold architectural ensemble tradition in Hoi An.
Hoi An is very beautiful, but also very crowded. Thanh Ha pottery village can be busy too, but is a whole other world. Thanh Ha is still a pure village. Walking to the village you find easily a workshop museum, surrounded by the houses of several craftsmen where you can learn to work with potter’s wheel. The museum provides a special workshop, developed to rediscover yourself and your hidden abilities with just the use of clay and water.
