“Must see!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 25, 2013

What a fun place!!! This is twhere to go for authentic handmade souvenirs for friends, family snd yourself. I bought for all three. They have been able to keep the small, homey feeling without making it into a big business. You can see the pottery being made right in front of you and have lots of choices from which to buy. The prices are reasonable and the pottery is colorful and very well made. Look at the steps leading up to the shop, check out the mango tree along side it, stop in the batik studio and have a snack in the Tree Top Cafe next door.

“Exquisite pottery, pay a visit!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 9, 2013 via mobile

If you love colorful vibrant pottery, a visit to Earthworks is a must! This isn't a highly commercialized visitor centre giving you the hard sell or guided tours, the pottery works are free for you to walk around and the staff are friendly and happy to help. I personally say its worth a visit just to check out their toilet! :-) the views around the centre are amazing and the founders have created vibrant premises that reflect the pieces they create. I bought a few items which I adore, when I look at them I think of Barbados and the wonderful time I had. Yes you can buy their pieces from various retail outlets on the island but nowhere has the full extensive collection like the original source! It took me so long to decide as everything was beautiful. I'm hoping to be back again next year and I will definitely be adding to my collection. Thank you Earthworks, keep on with your glorious works of art.

“A great stop.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 30, 2013

Stopped here with my wife, 11 yr old boy, and 8 yr old girl. Very friendly staff even gave the kids some clay to mold while my wife and I shopped. Great to see the staff working in the shop - molding and trimming the clay and decorating it. This is a great place to buy something authentic from Barbados. The pieces were so beautiful. I highly recommend stopping in and buying local product. Great products and staff.
