Classes at Abu Dhabi Pottery EST
Abu Dhabi Pottery establishment is our go-to studio for all things pottery. They offer a wide variety of classes and workshops for both adults and children from ages 5+. Everyone is welcome!
We loved that classes were divided into 3 sections based on your ability level and age. We booked their single 2-hour session and were surprised by the amount of information and techniques we were able to grasp while still enjoying our time.
Classes are catered to everyone’s needs, whether you’re looking for a quick one-time session as a day activity, like we did, or you are looking to take the art of pottery and carving seriously with courses up to 12 sessions!
The most affordable pottery studio in Abu Dhabi
We found the rates to be quite reasonable for a one-time class given that all the equipment was included. Also, with the techniques we learned we were able to master pottery in the spam of the 2 hour class.
Prices vary depending on the class/course you wish to take, with a starting price of 155 AED up to 1,980 AED for adults and a starting price of 120 AED to 1,450 AED for children.
All bookings for 10-12 sessions includes a free 2-hour session for a friend of family, perfect for a fun activity. All tools are included free of charge.
What do they offer?
Not only does the studio offer classes and workshops, they also offer pottery equipment, tools and materials for sale for those who would like to indulge in the art of pottery in the comfort of their own home. Anything from pottery wheels to safety wear. We bought some extra clay and carving equipment from their supply shop to be able to apply the steps we learnt in the class at home. The studio also offers repairs and restoration for broken china or pottery. Anything pottery related? They have it all!
