Event details

Join local historian Robyn Mason on a tour of central New Lynn that brings to life the vibrant story of the region's clay and ceramics heritage, and the people who forged it.

Along the way, visit the Ambrico Kiln and Te Toi Uku Clay Works Museum – home to the country's largest collection of Crown Lynn ware.

The Remains of the Clay reveals the storied landscape of our whenua and its people – a story of brick-bats, pottery, and brickyard bigamy, of sewer pipes for the City and crockery for the country.
