How to unwind successfully
Jun 2021 • Solo
The whole experience was fantastic. Went throwing pots (almost literally I felt sometimes), fantastic morning - Sarah, Helen and front of house in shop were brilliant. I knew it would be hard, didn't realise how hard, I now have a greater appreciation. Seriously considering a second attempt (sorry Sarah!). Thoroughly recommended relaxing experience. Totally amazed four structures at the end - not all usable or worth keeping but I made them (with excellent guidance) admittedly one would have been a very leaky mug or a plant pot.

Clay room fun
Oct 2020 • Family
What a wonderful afternoon! Myself, sister, mum and neice attended a workshop this afternoon making planters with personality. It was a treat from my sister to us all. Fabulous fun doing something different, especially after the year we have all had so far with covid 19 and lockdown. Really enjoyable and a great experience. Felt very safe with appropraliate measures in place so no need to worry. .All materials and tools were provided. Even a great cup of tea part way through. Great teacher to keep us all on the right track and to help if needed. Would highly recommend for an afternoon of fun for a family group or group of friends. Excellent value and can't wait to see the finished results once they are fired.

Great day out, lots of fun
Sep 2020
My Mum, Sister's and I had a great day yesterday clay sculpting a hare!
Helen was brilliant and we had such a laugh.
I recommend this to anyone who just wants time out and a few hours of fun. Great value for money too.

The shop has lovely quality items for sale as well, from talented artists at good prices.

Give it a go... you won't regret it!

We had such a fun Sunday morning throwing pots with Sarah. Sarah is extremely patient and will help you as much or as little as you want in mastering this tricky but relaxing skill. We were a family group of 20-30s male and females and we all really enjoyed it and can't wait to come back and try it again 😁👍🏻

Have a throw! It changes everything!
Aug 2020 • Friends
There’s nothing quite like this experience! A truly memorable time; a big challenge to try and use never before known techniques, with added laughter and fun, making an object with clay on a potters wheel. Really friendly supportive expert informative direction from Sarah whose knowledge was vast and shared generously, and whose patience deserves an award.

It was my first attempt of throwing clay. I had great tuition from Sarah and even managed to create a pot! Will definitely be coming back again. Great fun for all the family.

We went as four friends as part of a birthday weekend. None of us had a clue what we were doing and Helen was brilliant, funny and patient and talked us all through. It is a good laugh and we made hares. Thank you!

Sculpting magic
Feb 2020 • Solo
I had a brilliant time today sculpting a hare. Being creative with clay at school was my passion and revisiting today has reignited my love of all things clay, it was like coming home! Thank you for a little bit of sculpting magic! Most enjoyable! Highly recommend! xxx

Great activity
Oct 2019
A great place to try some sculpting or throwing (we went for the latter). A really friendly team, they take time to teach you and show a massive amount of patience! I'd highly recommend it - we went for a birthday activity.

It could do with a more prominent sign to help find it, but that's easily sorted :)

What a great experience!
Sep 2019 • Friends
My friend and I did a throwing workshop here and it was absolutely brilliant. Sarah and Helen were really welcoming and made the morning great fun, despite neither of us having any clue what to do! Tea making skills were strong & they were very patient as we muddled through. Can’t wait to visit again! Thanks so much.
