I don't even know how to describe how wonderful Janet is at hands-on art adventures. After a few extremely tough months of sickness and surgery. I was able to have some art therapy, using the potters wheel and painting ceramics. I usually only take the children to paint and for story time (which again Janet is amazing at) The children...

Hi Kathleen, thank you for your lovely review. It is not only the children's skills who have been improving! I loved your potter's wheel creation and am looking forward to seeing how you choose to decorate it, maybe you will even "throw" some more to match... All the best, Janet More

A fun family hour spent together for our Daughters 16th birthday, lots of laughs. Looking forward to our return visit to decorate our pots in a few weeks time. Would definitely recommend.

Myself and my friend went pottery making with Janet in April. She made us feel very welcome and was a very good teacher! It was a very fun experience even as adults! Lol

I love taking my kids to Hands on Art. They get to paint and really create their own little ornaments. They can make gifts for family and friends too. The first Thursday evening each month is ladies only which is brilliant fun. On Fridays at 10am is story time and for £6 your little one listens to the story, paints... More

Highly recommend this to anyone, artists of all abilities are catered for. I arrived alone and was made to feel very welcome. The facilities are ideal and fully equipped to create a satisfying project that can be completed in a few hours. There are books with inspiration if you suffer from an "artists block", stamps of various shapes and sizes.... More

We've gone to "Make Your Own Pottery" places in the States before and our kids always have had a great time. We made the most of a rainy weekend in Runnymeade/Windsor and enjoyed an afternoon here. Staff was great, prices were fair and my daughter learned some nice differences between England and American culture!

I booked a table for my 9year old daughter and a friend. We were welcomed with a sign wishing her Happy Birthday in the front shop window, which was amazing and a very personal touch. The girls had a great time! There was a lot of choice of ceramics to decorate and it was a very relaxed and friendly atmosphere.... More
