Auckland City Fringe Makers Trail

Welcome to our makers trail, including galleries, shops, ceramic and pottery studios.

Updated April 2024

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, Studio One Toi Tu to Workshop 6, and Edge City . 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.

April 2024 update. 
We have added new options in the Grey Lynn shops including Tawhiao, the gallery of artist Tracey Tawhiao, and Season Aotearoa, recently moved from downtown.  Public Record has moved down the road slightly, and Studio One Toi Tu is back in its original location at 1 Ponsonby Road.
