I've been buying Bennington Pottery since 1965, so seeing their current display was a trip through history for me. The staff is informed and friendly, proud of what they're displaying and eager to be helpful.

We needed to look at some pottery so Bennington was the place we selected. This is an old large building. They have a lot of finished products and we also went into the production plant. Good stop for the people interested in pottery.

Hi Andrew, We do not offer any option where you would be able to paint your own pottery. If you are in the area stop in though to see the Potters making our pottery, and check out the Store here at Potters Yard!
