A Remarkable Watermelon Carving Experience at Siam Carving Academy I recently had the privilege of attending a watermelon carving workshop at Siam Carving Academy, and it was an absolutely amazing experience. Under the expert guidance of Wan, the instructor, I delved into the art of transforming ordinary watermelons into stunning edible masterpieces. Wan's teaching style was exceptional. She patiently guided us through the intricate process of watermelon carving, instilling confidence in each participant. Her expertise and attention to detail were truly remarkable, as she shared invaluable techniques and tips that brought our creations to life. The workshop fostered a creative and supportive environment, allowing us to explore our artistic abilities with enthusiasm. Wan encouraged us to think outside the box and experiment with different designs. It was a joy to witness the incredible transformations that took place as we carved the watermelons into intricate patterns and shapes. The hands-on experience was truly rewarding. Wan ensured that each participant received personalized attention, offering guidance and encouragement every step of the way. Her passion for watermelon carving was evident, and her dedication to sharing her knowledge and expertise was inspiring. Beyond the exceptional instruction, the warm and inviting atmosphere at Siam Carving Academy made the experience even more memorable.

Exceptional Carving Workshop Experience at Siam Carving Academy I recently had the pleasure of participating in a three-day full-time carving workshop at the Siam Carving Academy in Bangkok, and I must say it was an extraordinary experience. As an avid enthusiast of culinary arts, I was thrilled to explore the art of fruit and vegetable carving, and this workshop surpassed all my expectations. Under the expert guidance of Wan, our instructor, I acquired invaluable skills and knowledge in various carving techniques over the course of three days. Each day focused on different produce, ensuring a diverse learning experience. On the first day, we delved into the intricate world of tomato and carrot carving. Wan's teaching style was clear, patient, and encouraging, making the learning process enjoyable and rewarding. She provided insightful tips and tricks that enabled us to create stunning carved designs. The second day was equally captivating as we ventured into the realm of pumpkin, carrot, and radish carving. Wan's expertise and attention to detail truly shone throughout the day. Her ability to break down complex designs into manageable steps allowed us to achieve remarkable results. On the final day, we embarked on watermelon carving, which proved to be a true highlight of the workshop. Wan's passion for her craft was evident as she shared her extensive knowledge and demonstrated advanced techniques. I left the workshop feeling inspired and eager to continue exploring this art form. Aside from Wan's exceptional instruction, I would be remiss not to mention the warm and welcoming atmosphere created by Wan and her husband, Larry. They went above and beyond to ensure our comfort and satisfaction throughout the workshop. Their hospitality was unparalleled, and the fact that they served us delicious homemade Thai food each day was simply delightful. It added an extra layer of authenticity to the entire experience. The workshop provided a perfect balance of theoretical instruction, practical demonstrations, and hands-on practice. Wan's teaching style instilled confidence in each participant, regardless of their prior experience. The class size was intimate, allowing for personalized attention and guidance from Wan whenever needed. Overall, my three-day full-time carving workshop at Siam Carving Academy was a truly remarkable experience. Wan's expertise, along with her husband Larry's hospitality, created an environment conducive to learning and growth. I wholeheartedly recommend this workshop to anyone interested in fruit and vegetable carving or simply looking for a unique and enriching culinary experience. I am grateful for the opportunity to learn from such talented individuals and for the memories that will undoubtedly last a lifetime. I can't wait to continue honing my carving skills and applying everything I learned. Thank you, Wan and Larry, for an unforgettable experience!

I signed up for the 3-hour carving workshop. I was looking for an interesting indoor, air-conditioned activity to beat the afternoon heat, and this did not disappoint! It was such a fun way to learn a new skill and participate in a little bit of Thai culture. The workshop even includes the carving knife so you can continue to practice at home. I definitely enjoyed myself. Thank you, Wan and Larry!

My partner and I signed up for the 3 hours course. Definitely something different from your normal cooking class! It was not easy but interesting to learn a traditional skill. We worked on tomatoes, carrots and cucumbers and were amazed how these everyday vegetables can turn into intricate pieces of art. Wan was a very professional and patient teacher who taught us passionately.. She went to help us individually to make sure we got the right angles to carve the vegetables. Larry was also responsive with messages and assisted us the best directions to get to their school. Definitely recommend this activity for a break in Bangkok.

Fantastic experience! Wan (Leong) is a patient teacher and true master at her craft, and both she and Larry took such great care of me and offered all kinds of insights about Bangkok (it’s my first time visiting). I really enjoyed my 6-hour session learning the basics of fruit and vegetable carving, an ancient and unique Thai practice. I now have major respect for the skill, patience and sheer effort it takes to make these masterpieces. I highly recommend a carving session with Wan if you’re in Bangkok and want a different and memorable experience.

My husband and I took the Carving course this April. It was one of our best highlights and productivity of Thailand trip. The Master Chef, ,despite being an expert Carver and instructor, is superbly creative. She patiently took us the process and explained all technicalities of using a carving knife and gave numerous creative ideas. In 3 hours, we learnt the foundation well, ready to plunge into the business world. We will be back again for the advanced workshop. Big thanks to Chef and to Mr. Larry for guidance all through. See you!
