About Abu Dhabi Pottery

Abu 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 (and on Fridays by prior arrangements if there are 5 or more students in each group or class).

Birthday Parties for Children & Adults

We host children’s parties in our studio, or the comfort of your own home, where children are introduced to Hand-building pottery. They will make a pinch pot and be given the choice of making animals, a small teapot or a small pendant.

This tutorial can be carried out, at Abu Dhabi Pottery, for students of all ages and backgrounds and can be adapted to suit the age of participants, starting from 5 years old to A level and university students and other interested groups of adults.

Team Building Sessions
