Pottery workshops a new favorite parent-child bonding experience in Ho Chi Minh City

As the city reopens following months of closures due to COVID-19, a local pottery workshop is the perfect place for parents looking to spend a fun and innovative afternoon with their children. 

Nhan Tri Dung pottery workshop on Tran Van Tra Street, District 7, Ho Chi Minh City is the newest hotspot for parents looking to expose their children to the world of art.

Tran Ngoc Lan, a resident of Tan Phu District, recently visited the workshop with a group of friends to learn how to make pottery and create meaningful gifts for loved ones.

According to Lan, making pottery is a great way to relax after a long work and is a much more unique experience than sipping coffee in local cafes.

Pham Thi Diem Phuc, a resident of Ho Chi Minh City's Thu Duc City, brought her six-year-old daughter to the pottery workshop in order to give the child a break from her countless hours of screen time.

"My child has been at home for such a long time and I wanted to introduce her to this art," Phuc shared.

Duong Quang Huy, from Tan Phu District, also recently paid a visit to the pottery workshop.

"This is the first time my friends have invited me to try my hand at pottery. I'll bring my family here next time. It’s really fun,” Huy said.

Ho Chi Minh City has been the hardest-hit locality in Vietnam since the fourth virus wave of the COVID-19 pandemic began on April 27, with more than 454,000 infections.

The city had imposed various levels of social distancing since May 31 before loosening restrictions in October thanks to a high vaccination rate.

As of Wednesday, local health authorities had administered more than 13.8 million vaccine doses, with nearly six million out of nine million people in the city fully inoculated.
