To anyone who ever thought of doing pottery as a hen party activity this is definitely the place to come! We had an absolute ball! It definitely brings out your creative side. It's great for mixing the group up and getting people talking to each other. Adrian, is fantastic. He's so well organised and brilliant to deal with. Highly recommend... More

My daughter who was 7 attended 1 week summer camp and thoroughly enjoyed it. She did lots of different arts & crafts and brought home everything she made which is still in tact surprisingly enough!! She met lots of kids and had a great time. On leaving she said she wanted to do it again next year!

I immersed myself in a 3 day pottery workshop a week ago. It was a wonderful experience. We got to learn about various methods of working with clay and also got a taste of throwing and turning on the wheel. There were people from all walks of life taking part as well as all ages which added to the experience.... More
