Soft Clay Studios is run by Sutopo - who is an experienced trainer in ceramics technique since 2010. He freelanced as a product model maker and an exhibit sculptor, but later pursued a career in ceramics as it proved to be more fulfilling, being able to create and teach the art of ceramics to the public. Sutopo believes there is an artist in everyone, a natural inert ability that can be nurtured given the right environment.

We learnt really interesting historical nuggets about the dragon kiln and traditional methods of working with clay- and had a wonderful time working on the wheel (within a lovely leafy Forrest setting). Sutopo was super helpful, friendly, gave clear instructions and was attentive in guiding us- throughout the process. Very happy with our ‘creations’ and would highly recommend!

We had so much fun at the studio learning how to make our first ever ceramic pieces! Sutopo showed us the dragon kiln and told us about the history and pottery. He was very patient, spent time showing and explaining to us how to use the wheel and handle the clay. I'm so happy to have chosen Soft clay studio for our first pottery experience! Highly recommended!!

It’s my first time doing this and I’m glad I chose this class with Soft Clay Studio. Mr. Sutopo was very patient with us and he explained clearly on every steps needed to come up with our own masterpiece. Thumbs up for him!!

Thoroughly enjoyed the wheel throwing trial class conducted by Mr Sutopo (Soft Clay Studios). VERY reasonably priced / value for money workshop compared to many other studios in SG. The compound has lovely natural surroundings that inspires calm and creativity. Highly recommended!
