The Township Clay Experience is an immersive, tactile journey into the heart of the vibrant youths working here. During this 3-hour encounter you will discover our unique history, work with clay, paint a clay flute to take home, and learn to play clau UDU drums. We call this the #SoundOfTheGround.

Most importantly, you will connect with the pioneering passion and vision of the Macassar Pottery crew.

Macassar – a place where dreamers and visionaries live

In 1692 beauty won the day when an activist-king from Indonesia, Shekh Yusuf, was banished here, only to assemble a ragamuffin community of runaway slaves and free thinkers around him.

Today, Macassar Pottery studio, a self-sustaining social enterprise founded in 2010, is a safe space for the community, youths in particular, to discover and follow their dreams. The business is co-owned by its employees.
