We stopped off here to make some gifts from the children. The owner could not have been more helpful and the children made some lovely gifts and I even was offered a nice cup of tea. Thank you so much for such an enjoyable afternoon

Well explained - good selection of ceramics to chose from. Friendly staff and everything included including a cup of tea and biscuit. Can wait to see the result when the pottery we all made is baked and ready (3-4 days).

Me and my girlfriend came here for in excess of a 2hr visit where we had amazing fun, painting Christmas decorations. Lovely staff. Great facilities and a generally chilled out evening. Looking for something different go and try Doodles. Fun for all Ages.
