  • Gorgeous place to come if you like pottery
  • The pottery section is great, lots of interesting designs and a few "seconds" at reduced prices. The café is what let's this place down. The venue's nice, but they only had a very small selection of uninteresting food. The menu looked like it was from the 80s. Almost no cabinet food to chose from (we were there just after 12). It's one redeeming feature was the coffee, which was great.
  • Amazing place. So many things I could just buy. All different colours and sizes. Loved this place. ❤️
  • Great information/ factory tour. Seeing the pot be shaped in minutes was awesome. Getting to understand the whole process from clay extraction thru to final glazing gives you a full appreciation of the work involved in the final pieces of art/ work. Nice cafe too
  • Love the colours of all the items. What I think would be a good idea is the occasional shape with an idea in it be a plant or a bowl for the less imaginative like me!
