City Fringe Makers Trail
Welcome to our makers trail, including galleries, shops, ceramic and pottery studios.
Our city fringe includes Upper Queen St, Ponsonby, Grey Lynn, Westmere and Pt Chevalier. This can be broken into two sections. From Anna Miles to Objectspace, and from Further Doings to Front Room Gallery. You can access all or parts of this trail on foot, by bus, bike or drive. Check the opening hours before embarking on this one – especially for the makers – Thursday to Saturday is often best.
