Pottery District

Workshop in A'Ali

Look out for the giant amphorae and head inwards from the corner of the highway and Ave 42 to explore Bahrain’s most famous pottery district, where traditional family-run workshops continue to thrive. Don't distract the potters and no one will stop you from peering in as they go about their daily work and the mud-brick kilns are fired up. The workshop nearest the highway is Mohamed Ja'far's. His son Hasan speaks some English should you require an informal guide.
