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 took the one day glass fusing course. The Teacher was great at explaining techniques and advising on how to create effects. We had a lot of freedom in the choice of what we produced. The facilities were comfortable and the setting was beautiful. Unfortunately there was a problem with the firing and our original pieces were lost but the... More

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

Having been on a 1 day taster course for pottery in 2011, I wanted to return to Kinsale Pottery and Arts Centre with friends, and my hen party was the perfect excuse. We had an absolutely lovely day, and everyone in the group from experienced art teachers to the self-proclaimed noncreatives thoroughly enjoyed it. Adrian is a very good teacher... More

My mom and I had a fantastic time during the one day introduction to pottery course at the Kinsale Pottery and Arts Centre in May 2012. Adrian, the tutor was full of knowledge, very informative and in my opinion extremely patient with what I can only assume must be repetitive questions for him, overall a great tutor. I would definitely... More
