Our family with 2 boys of 10 and 14 had a great hour pottery lesson. Kathryn was very friendly and showed us the basic skills to make three pieces of pottery. She made it look easy and had to rescue some of our wayward attempts! We each got to take away an unfired pot and for a small fee Kathryn put aside our favourite pot to be glazed and fired and sent by post to us in 4 week's time. All in all a really fun experience.

Kathryn was fantastic help and really tallented at teaching us novices throwing pottery. We made 3 pieces and was able to have one fired to be posted and take one home on the day. Couldn't reccomend this more. So much fun!

My fiancé and I were looking for a place to escape from the wind and the rain in the lake district and crafty monkeys was the perfect place. We were there for a good couple of hours and had such a brilliant time. Chilled music, calm atmosphere and really creative fun!

Initially, I was nervous that it would be very child orientated, but it wasn't. As two people in our young 20's we loved being able to just sit and paint and have a laugh together. It is such a brilliant idea and very reasonably priced. Sadly, we were only visiting the lake district on holiday so can't go back again but I would highly recommend this day out to anyone!

I came here with my 4 yr old daughter. We both thoroughly enjoyed the visit and both painted things. My daughter did a purple horse and I painted a ballet dancer, she didn't want to leave. Reasonably priced and would definitely come again and recommend

We went to Crafty Monkeys this week for a team building event for 32 people. Everyone had a great day, throwing a pot, painting an item of pottery or decorating a decoupatch item. Kathryn and her team were very friendly and helpful, giving out handy tips. We were able to take a buffet made by caterers.
