beautiful traditional food carving I went for the half day course with my partner. Wan was a professional instructor and taught us how to carve vegetables into decorative pieces of art for food presentation. She is very passionate about her work and would patiently help the students one by one . As this was our first time at food carving, it was not easy but we enjoyed ourselves and were amazed by how simple carrots, cucumbers and tomatoes can look so fancy!!

Unparalleled learning experience from Wan Hertz My wife and I attended the Siam Carving Academy for nine days, taking the beginning, intermediate, and advanced carving courses from Wan Hertz. Wan is truly a master carver and a very patient instructor. She started us out slowly, and as our skills increased, challenged us with increasingly intricate tasks that kept us riveted to our work. When each day of class was over, we were truly amazed at what we accomplished under her guiding hands. Wan and her husband, Larry, are very personable, and we greatly enjoyed visiting with them each day. They taught us a lot about the Thai culture. Wan took us shopping at the Chatuchak Market one evening after class, and spent a whole Saturday taking us to the floating market. One lunch hour, Larry gave us a tour of the local street food vendors, pointing the dishes and drinks that were especially tasty. Wan is also a very skilled chef. Each day she made lunches for us that rivaled the best restaurants in Bangkok. The Siam Carving Academy is located a convenient five minute walk from the Sutthisan metro station. The facility is clean and comfortable. We had a fulfilling and memorable experience. We recommend it to anyone interested in creative and challenging Thai fruit and vegetable carving.

Thai Master Carver Series Course I attended the 9 days intense course of Thai Master Carver Series Course for Thai Fruit & Vegetable and I would definitely recommend it to anyone who wants to take a new challenge and enjoy the ride with the proffesional attitude and behavior of Mrs. Wan, she was definitely very polite and available throwout the duration of course and not only. To don' t forget the help of Mr. Larry who was a great help for anything and even a personal guide for me in Bangkok 🤗😁. I felt part of the family already and cant wait to travel again in Bangkok and visit them both, this time with more knowledge in the amazing art of Carving, thanks to them 🙏😁. Many thanks and Regards, Enrico, Italy 🇮🇹, Grazie.

Casual 3-hr Carving Class I attended the 3-hours class with my mother-in-law. Wan, our teacher and master carver, is very friendly and approachable. She taught us how to carve flowers, baskets and leaves using tomatoes, carrots and cucumbers. We were each provided with a carving knife which we could bring home with us. The art of carving was definitely not easy but this class was a good and fun experience for us.

Fruit carving Had a great time with Wan. What a lovely teacher. I was very lucky to have her all to myself. I was able to learn a lot. The dinner was a lot of fun with Larry and the food was great. I would recommend this class to anyone wanting to try fruit carving.
