This is a really lovely place to visit. We have been before and my 9 year old daughter chose to have her birthday party here. As soon as we arrived, everything was organised and ready to go. Kate was great with the children, helping them to choose something to paint and how to choose the colours. After birthday tea, the... More

Spent a leisurely morning here painting pottery with family. We were given instruction and advice as required - Jane was particularly helpful. It's nice to be able to choose pieces that you can paint in colours to match your home as I did, or to make a personalised gift for someone. There are silk screen print stencils, rubber stencils with... More

My son (aged 11) went with a friend to a Christmas Workshop. He made a wreath, printed wrapping paper and a snow-bauble. He had a great time.

My friend and I have just got back from This Art of Mine and had a great day. Kate was really friendly and helpful. We're already planning our next visit! Thank you so much! Lots to choose from, great instruction and plenty of colours and tools to use. Great for all ages, not just families

I visited here with my partner today and it was so lovely. The place is set in such beautiful grounds, really peaceful and relaxing and the lady there was so helpful, giving us hints and tips on how to make our pottery masterful!! The actual room where you paint is also spacious and clean with lots of options for what... More

Booked my daughters birthday party here. I was really impressed by how helpful the staff were with the party. They offered free tea and coffee for the adults, and we were able to bring in food for the children. The kids were able to pick from a large selection of pottery. As they were young children it only kept them... More

This is a great place tucked away in the middle of nowhere - it's a family run business and always a delight to visit. Their website is very good for info about classes and one-off events and always a great place to take the kids during school holidays

Went for my Hen Day, fun had by all, ages ranged from 10 to 83, and we had a keepsake at the end. Very helpful staff.

Our team organised a Christmas buffet lunch and ceramic 'experience'. I had my doubts and thought this sort of thing best left to my children, however I really enjoyed the afternoon. The staff were helpful and the venue excellent. It wasn't your traditional 'team event', however there was still an element of competition and most of all I found it... More

I am a crafty adult and love nothing more than doing some crafts to relax. The first time I visited the studio it was excellent. There was only me in the class so it was very quiet and the tutor was helpful and gave me great advice. This class I had to prebook and was on a Thursday. The second... More

I'm sorry to hear that you didn't have a good time with us at the weekend. We do work hard to ensure that everyone enjoys themselves. Weekends are primarily for families and thus there will inevitably be children around. We do have a quiet room downstairs which I would have been happy for you to use to paint your piece... More
