Spent a lovely morning learning pottery with Lee and Kathy. Having never tried pottery before we were immediately put at ease as Lee began to teach the group. We all had plenty of time at the wheel and our clay began to take shape.
My partner and I have just finished a weeks course at the pottery. Whilst we are not absolute beginners having attended a couple of courses elsewhere, Lee’s approach to teaching has been a revelation. Both Lee and his mother Cathy were very welcoming and set...More
I booked an afternoon on the beginners throwing class which was affordable at £40. I learned so much in that time. Lee is an excellent teacher and really knows his stuff, he makes the session fun too so the time flew by! I got to...More
Thoroughly enjoyable morning learning the basic skills on how to be creative using a pottery wheel.
Both Lee and Cathy made us very welcome they were understanding and professional teachers. Can’t believe we made 6-8 pots from never having thrown clay before in just a...More
An original and fascinating birthday treat from my daughter. A warm welcome, lovely surroundings, and great fun learning pottery basics. Can't wait to go back and collect my pots!
Many thanks to Lee and his Mum for a great experience.

Thank you for your review. Look forward to meeting you again.
Thoroughly enjoyable afternoon in beautiful countryside. Lee and Cathy make welcoming and professional teachers. Can’t believe I made 8 pots from never having thrown clay before I’m just a few hours. A great afternoon. I’ll be back. Thank you.
We had an afternoon taster session at Bentham pottery and thoroughly enjoyed it. Lee is a very good teacher - we all managed to produce a pot on the wheel and a hand built pot. It was great fun and we would highly recommend it!
I don’t normally write reviews but felt I had to champion this place. Took my boyfriend for his late 30th birthday, he’s not that into arts and crafts but he loved it! Lee and his mum were so friendly and such good teachers. Can’t wait...More
