Ten-Second Takeaway

The Clay Company is a niche art company focused on pottery and ceramics. Their mission is to make the joy of working with clay accessible, convenient and fun.

High On Pot And Pan

As adults and young adults, we know that work becomes a pretty big part of your life. If you’re a student, there are exams to be taken, assignments to be submitted and so much more. The Clay Company does pottery classes that you can design according to your preferences, especially since they keep in mind your busy work schedules.

Aparna Choudhrie, founder of TCC, studied economics at St Stephen’s College and has a Masters Degree in Business from Carnegie Mellon University, Pennsylvania. After spending more than 13 years in corporate roles, in Delhi and London, she decided to share this super therapeutic art form with people who live similarly stressed lives, with little time to unwind.

They have two studios—one at Nehru Place where they offer regular pottery classes, and another pop-up studio near Rishikesh at Atali Ganga, where they offer residency courses to groups. Creating a space for a community of clay-lovers at their Nehru Place studio, TCC is for people who want to make, learn, buy and sell pottery. Tailored for busy schedules, this is a cosy place that will give a structure to your pottery skills.

Not working in a batch system, you can in fact run your own schedule of classes at TCC. Enrol and let them know one day in advance that you’re coming in, and they will be prepared for the class. There are two sessions Tuesday to Sunday, morning and evening; Mondays are off.

Act On Instinct

Running programmes for school groups, corporate groups, or groups of friends/family, the residency programme also involves yoga, kayaking, river rafting, wall climbing, high ropes course, hiking, mountain biking, a beginners course in astronomy, camping boot-camp, and a flora and fauna course!
