We love This Art of Mine
Aug 2021 • Family
We all love painting pottery! Have been many times and kids enjoy themselves. Seasonal workshops advertised too (Halloween Xmas Easter etc etc). Staff always on hand and helpful. Plenty of paint to be had, all is clean and organised. We all felt COVID safe :) :) :)

Beautiful setting but disappointing attitude of staff
Nov 2019 • Family
We have visited on a number of occasions, with the last visit a few months ago being slightly tarnished by an older lady member of staff being on the ‘bossy’ side. We decided to give it a second chance...

Sadly, the experience was spoiled by the attitude of the same member of staff who would not accept that sometimes children struggle to take advice (or instruction on this occasion) on their ‘artwork’ and need to do it their own way. It’s not school, it’s a pottery painting open session!

A really lovely way to spend a morning!
Sep 2019
We popped in today for pottery painting - two adults and 10 year old twins. For me and the two girls it was a return visit as we’d had such fun on our first visit last year. If anything we enjoyed ourselves even more this time. Loads of pottery pieces to choose from at reasonable prices, very helpful and friendly guidance on hand from staff and a wonderfully relaxing environment. There were quite a few people there but plenty of room still and we could stay as long as we wanted. All materials are provided and tea/coffee too. This a fab place, so therapeutic and great fun too.

Great time had by all
Oct 2018 • Family
We held part of a 8th birthday party at this art of mine. It was a great success, the ladies running it are lovely and very helpful; plus and the girls had so much fun they couldn't stop talking about it for hours afterwards. It even resulted in some of the adults getting involved in painting a pot. Thanks to this art of mine of making it a lovely afternoon for us.

Leadership team build - clay workshop
Oct 2018 • Business
We visited the studio yesterday and I just wanted to share the great experience my team and I had. Kate and Hannah hosted our Clay Workshop event which was such a relaxing and rewarding experience. We were made to feel very welcome at their studio which was absolutely fantastic in terms of setting and facilities. We we’re well instructed throughout and we were given all the help and guidance to find our creative sides. Never rushed, we were given ample time to create our own masterpiece by hand in clay and then got to create our own pot using the potters wheel - it was fantastic and we look forward to revisiting !! Thank you.

Best in Town
Nov 2017 • Solo
Brilliant as ever and look at the pictures, all these people can’t be wrong. Despite being busy as hell and packed to the rafters this busy Friday lunchtime the service didn’t drop and I even had my garlic nan brought to table in minutes

Chicken, Carrot and Pumpkin and hot keema over rice, where else could you get this hot and fresh in minutes after a couple of minutes queuing due to their massive local popularity

Enjoy Manchester’s best little secret

It’s special

Hi, thanks for taking the time to review, however I think you have got the wrong business as we are an art studio, sounds amazing though! If only we could have garlic naan brought to the tables at lunch, whilst doing a bit of painting, we would all be thrilled yum yum.

Worth bringing children or going to one of the adult workshops
Oct 2017 • Family
I have visited with children and have been on more than one of the adult evening workshops.

I would recommend both. Having been to other pottery painting places this definitely has the edge as both Kate and Gemma are always able to assist with ideas and have plenty of samples on show and have lots of ideas to assist people if they are lacking a bit of inspiration. There are also a good variety of tools available and which can help making a piece look professional and other places I've found just seem to have a few odd pieces of foam!

I'm not particularly creative however I do enjoy their evening classes, they are great if you fancy doing something a little arty. The step by step approach seems to be fail safe and you come out with an impressive item even if you are not Van Gough.

They also do holiday courses for children which are quite handy if you work my daughter recently enjoyed one of these.

Take a few extra pennies with you and stock up on free range eggs while you are there!

Beautiful setting
Jun 2017 • Family
We can here in June down a very small country lane! But the building is based in beautiful countryside very idillic. Pottery was great fun with an array of different paints, brushes and pottery to choose from. It was quite expensive but as a one off trip wasn't too bad. Plenty of seating. We decided to get our pottery delivered to home as we were far away. This seemed to take ages would be better to pick up after a week but living 40 mins away didn't think it was worth it. Apart from that would recommend.

Fantastic place for a birthday party
May 2017 • Family
This is a really lovely place to visit. We have been before and my 9 year old daughter chose to have her birthday party here. As soon as we arrived, everything was organised and ready to go. Kate was great with the children, helping them to choose something to paint and how to choose the colours. After birthday tea, the children were able to have a run around outside. I cannot recommend enough. Excellent!
