Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

We knew that we wanted to try pottery painting but had no idea what to expect, but the warm welcome we immediately felt and the friendly nature of everyone working there made this experience so relaxing and fun. We found the couple of hours very therapeutic and they flew by! Can’t wait to see the end result when it’s ready for collection. Looking forward to next time.

Came to the island to visit friends and spent some time painting pottery with the kids. The team at Craftworks Studio were so friendly and helpful. They shared their experiences well and helped out when creative juices weren’t flowing! We made some great pieces. Could have stayed all day! Can’t wait to pick them up!

Held my 60th birthday bash here, 20 of us! It was an amazing event and everyone loved it. I've just picked up the pieces we made and they are super, and the plate that they made for me (fingerprints made into a picture and signatures on the back) was just stunning. It will be a great souvenir of a brilliant birthday.

We had a fantastic time painting a mug and a bowl that we now cannot wait to use at home. The staff was extremely helpful and attentive. My husband was quite stressed at the beginning as he is not very crafty and didn’t have many ideas but the staff showed many examples and gave plenty of suggestions of things that were manageable for him to paint. Overall, we both truly enjoyed our time and we’ll be back.

Thank you Ania for your very kind words. I'm delighted we managed to put your husband at ease. A first visit to our studio can be quite stressful as most people feel that you have to be 'arty' but our team try very hard to create a gentle introduction to painting pottery. Hopefully after a few hours of mindful relaxation (after the initial worry!) even our most stressed guests enjoy their time with us. Thank you again, We look forward to seeing you both again in the future. Viv & the Craftworks team .

We just enjoy having a good go.

Had two lovely visits to the Studio over the Christmas Holiday. Our family group had such a relaxing time - a fun and really enjoyable experience. Staff on duty on both occassions were friendly and helpful - in fact I can't think of an occasion when I haven't enjoyed my time at Craftworks. Have marked this as "friends" as the family category doesn't cover our group (adults on this occasion)

I attended today with a group for a baby shower. The staff were very friendly and helpful. There was a wide range of good quality pottery to paint. It was great value for money and I will definitely be back!

A group of us called in to decorate mugs and a plate. The team were most helpful and made the experience fun and enjoyable and we now have some of our own creations that we can use every day. Well worth a visit you will not be disappointed.
