A friendly welcome and lots of different craft activities await you here. Pot making is the main attraction but there are lots to choose from.

I took my 9yr old niece here as a treat whilst on a break in the Lake District. We both had a go at pottery and with Michelle's help we made some nice little pieces to take home and decorate. My niece said this was the favourite part of her trip and I certainly enjoyed having an excuse to roll my sleaves up and have a go on the pottery wheel!

Superb! Once in a lifetime experience for the kids making their own pots on the porters wheel. Great venue and the staff (and owner) were BRILLIANT with the kids. We've been to tonnes of 'craft' places with the kids but there's truly nothing compares to this place! The kids really liked the owner, he was brilliant with them. And his patience was amazing......I couldn't cope with all the kids & crafty mess but he was great. My kids made a pot each and also picked an item to glue and stick special paper to which turned out FANTASTIC. Considering we only live 30 miles away, I wish we'd have discovered this place sooner!
I can't recommend this place enough!! A++++ FANTASTIC! We'll be telling ALL our friends and family!

Thanks for a great day!

What a fantastic place to take you children! We did and they was still talking about the visit and we are 6 months since our visit. The staff we great. Very engaging, knowledgeable and kid focused. The pots, plates, cups etc. that our children made are still going strong. This is not an activity to be rushed, so parents enjoy your coffee and relax....
