Thanks Malkie and glad you enjoyed your inaugural pot throwing experience. Ethan's very patient and we'll miss him at the Pottery - he's just enrolled on the BA Ceramics course in Cardiff and looking to develop his own practice :)

Took my granddaughters aged 6 and 8 for an afternoon session. Absolutely brilliant. The staff were friendly and helpful. The 8yr old was delighted to be able to make a mug on the potter's wheel with help. We will definitely be going again.

Thank you for taking the time to review your pottery experience with your grand daughters Gillian. Once the girl's creations are back in your possession, we'd love to see the mug in action! I'm thinking hot chocolate with lots of marshmallows and sprinkles ;)
