Pottery As Your Next Hobby? Here's LBB's Curated List Of Pottery Classes Around The City

Kasturi posted on 10 March

Get down and dirty with one of the most fun activities in town – pottery. The gentle hum of the wheel while you quietly focus on your wheel and your thoughts; it’s quite meditative, really. Here we have for you a list of our recommendations for the best pottery and ceramic experiences in the city and around.

Delhi Blue Pottery Trust

The largest pottery studio in India, Delhi Blue Pottery Trust offers a six-month course in studio pottery at two spots in the city. The Ceramic Centre at Sanskriti Foundation {MG Road} is a branch of the same. Over the duration of the course, the trainers hone your basic shape-making and filing techniques.

Their short, one month workshops during the summer are mostly for hand-built pottery. The most fun output of the class is all the artistic pots and pans you get to take back home.

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 here.
