Get down and dirty with one of the most fun activities in town—pottery. Here we have for you a list of the best pottery and ceramic classes in Delhi NCR. 

Sanskriti Kendra

At The Ceramic Centre in Sanskriti Foundation (MG Road), three-month-long classes are held twice a week and, the trainers focus on honing your basic shape-making and filing techniques.

Smug Mug

Studio potter and ceramic artist Meena Vohra takes foundation, primary, and advanced courses, and offers her knowledge of glazing techniques. Customisable classes run throughout the week, and they also eventually lead to exhibitions and special events. If you’re looking for a day class or team workshop for a single day, those are also available.

We love her work in tableware, mobiles, and chimes (perfect as gifts!).

The Clay Company

Their studio at Nehru Place offers regular pottery classes, and they’re pretty flexible with timings. They have a couple of courses to choose from along with a  beginner’s session that you can do in one day (it’s for two and half hours and covers all the basics of potter, clay and glazing). Aparna Choudhrie’s studio has a great vibe, and it’s a great place to hit up over the weekend if you’re looking to get creative and try your hand at pottery.

Claying Thoughts

Head over to Pooja’s cute little terrace in Noida to destress with a new hobby. Her studio is open to both children and adults to experiment with clay modelling and handbuilding pottery. the fun part is you don’t need to use a kiln, so you’re free to really experiment with the clay and mould it into all kinds of shapes. So de-stress over the weekend or whenever you’re free with her fun classes. The beginner session has eight classes. You can find more info on her blog.

 

Kalasthali Art School

The fine art school allows people of all age groups to explore their creativity, with their art, drama and music classes. When it comes to pottery, they have classes on working with clay, experimenting with different shapes, and then using the potter’s wheel. They charge extra to learn glazing and firing. They’re off on Wednesdays, but have classes on through the week.
