Wake up early and inspire your day with a 25-minute train ride over the historical Long Bien Bridge to reach the outskirts of Hanoi. The Long Bien Bridge is considered as the Old Story Teller of the city, who has been standing since the early days of last century and has witnessed all of the love and tears, from the times of bombing to the peaceful life today.
Arriving at a small suburb station, you take a short stroll around the village to explore the lively local morning market before reaching Gom Chi’s workshop. You will be welcomed by our friendly Gom Chi host in the green garden, drink a cup of local tea and learn about the history, the artistic point of view and style of Gom Chi. Next, the artists will guide you on how to make the products step-by-step. Touch the fresh wet clay, feel it move under your hands and make your own creation, a piece of art or a cup for your morning coffee… After the workshop it’s time to relax and say goodbye to the host.
For those who love fine art, you can take a short walk to visit the studio of an abstract painter whose paintings are being sought after by collectors worldwide.
