I highly recommend this studio for ceramic classes. The owner is wonderful and so are her teachers. I learned more in two lessons than my 16 weeks in NYC! It is an amazingly beautiful open studio surrounded in natural beauty.

The studio is lovely, open air, great atmosphere. Both Suzan and Agus were very friendly, patient and helpful. Can’t recommend this place enough!

Update: I expected to pick up my bowls after they were glazed as they said it would be done in 2-3 weeks. When I checked In They were not done and I was set to leave island. The staff at api were not willing to send (at their expense) or even give to a friend. I believe if they are going to take longer than advertised to finish an item a customer has to pay in advance for they should have the decency to contact the customer and explain why. They didn’t. I had to contact them and they were not open to being helpful.
I’m back in bali now and I got to pick them up. Luckily they saved them but I would never recommend this place to anyone

This is a very basic class without much playfulness. Over priced for what you get to do and no leniency on time. Agus seemed a bit bothered when I didn’t get the wheel right on the first go. He was worried about time. I was not able to try all the technics he showed me as he would not let me try while showing me. He had to do all 3 and then I got to try but only until my time was up and we had to move to the wheel. All the while telling me what I would learn in the full class but that it is not offered at this time. The 1/2 class is way to expensive for this kind of treatment.
Also...
They have a very aggressive dog that tried to bite me and attacked my dog. The owner said it was my fault for bringing my dog. Even tho I said to close the gate and keep him outside the studio.
My dog is not aggressive and goes everywhere in bali with me. Restaurant, massage, yoga studios, movie theatre. There has never been a problem. This is the first place that has had an aggressive dog that caused a problem.

ah Kari, you are just filled with negativity... I feel sorry for you. You could have had such a nice experience, had you not brought your dog without asking and then just complained and complained.... may you find some peace

I did one day course with Susan and I was extremely impressed on her way to explain step by step each process: from clay composition to glazing. She pushed me to use the wheel, stepping out of my comfort zone. Moreover, she has kindly offered to glaze my bowl and send them to Australia.
The studio is beautiful and peaceful, surrounded by nature, lush!
Cannot recommend Susan and Sari Api studio more.
Thank you again for the wonderful experience.

I always wanted to take classes in pottery. Susan was a terrific teacher who explained the basic rules in the 3 hour class I signed up for. Had a good conversation too. Definitely a memorable experience.

Susan provided a good overview and was helpful. I liked the pace of class. Susan also ships your pieces once theyare fired and glazed in the kilns. I am looking forward to receiving mine. Next time, I might go for a full day class.

My friend and I traveled to Ubud for the day from Canggu to check out this class and have lunch at Locavore. It was very peaceful - you are working with your hands and drinking tea, feeling the breeze from the banana trees all around, and there's a lazy dog hanging around too. We're both beginners and neither of our pieces are masterpieces but we had the right amount of help and enjoyed the experience.
Two notes:
They tell you this, but there is a gallery and a studio. The class is at the studio!!
Pieces will probably not be complete while you're still in town if you're traveling and the prices to ship are expensive bc it's overseas. Not a huge deal but good to note if you want to have them.

We had the best time at the Sari Api studio during our recent holiday to Bali. It was lovely to do something creative whilst in Ubud, out of the hustle and bustle. The studio itself is situated looking out onto lush tropical greenery which makes it all the more special. Suzan was a great teacher and very patient! Our pieces arrived the other day and we are so happy with our little creations!
