Pottery & Ceramics Classes in Central Auckland

About Our Pottery & Ceramics Classes

Welcome to Ayni Pottery Studio in Auckland!   At Ayni, we offer ceramics and pottery classes where the possibilities are truly endless — from crafting pots and vases to lanterns, sculptures, and more.  If you can dream it, you can mould it!

Immerse yourself in the world of clay, transforming your artistic expression into functional ware or decorative pieces of ceramic art.

Connect with your natural rhythm through the meditative, evenly paced kich-wheel.

Explore the fundamentals of hand-building with techniques like pinching, slab-building, coiling, texturing, and more. Whether you come with your own project ideas or seek inspiration during the first class, we'll collaborate to bring your vision to life.

Creating with our hands goes beyond art—it's nurturing our creative spirit and a journey toward mental clarity, focus, and relaxation. This is meditation in action, resulting in genuine happiness. Join us for a delightful time among fellow artisans as we share the joy of crafting and self-discovery.
