Welcome to the new website for Abu Dhabi Pottery

The 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.  Come and join the fun!

We offer sessions for individuals, old & young, and groups of families, friends & colleagues, as well as a range of support services for potters & educational establishments throughout UAE.
