Mobile Friendly MenuAbu Dhabi Pottery was established in 1994 by Homa Vafaie Farley to share her love of pottery with others. Since then countless students – adults and children, from all over the world – have been introduced to the techniques, and the enjoyment, of working with clay.
Pottery classes are available in Abu Dhabi, 6 days a week (Not Fridays), and also in Dubai by arrangement. We offer pottery tuition for individuals, old & young, and groups of families, friends & colleagues.
Come and join the fun at Abu Dhabi Pottery, one of the most welcoming and inspiring creative studios in the UAE!

We also offer a range of support services for potters, schools & colleges, including lectures & demonstrations, health & safety training, studio layout design and the supply of pottery equipment and materials throughout UAE.
